Living in Chicago we are blessed with some of the best pizza on earth. I don’t want to hear from you New Yorkers about your folded over cardboard, haha, you’re not going to convince me or turn me to the dark side!
However, we have our own internal squabbles here in Chicago…which pizza place is better? And there are so many many places. I grew up eating Aurelio’s Pizza….and if we had one near where I live that’s what I would eat every Friday night!
Typically if my family craves deep dish pizza, we make our own Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza recipe. I wondered what would happen if we took our favorite pizza and made soup!
How to make Easy Pizza Soup recipe
This soup recipe is very customizable to your favorite pizza topping. And the best part is it’s made in the slow cooker!
First though, if adding sausage, you’ll need to brown it. Thankfully my Ninja Slow cooker has a setting to saute the meat before turning it on slow cooker mode. If your crockpot can’t do that, just brown the sausage in a large skillet on the stove top, and remove the excess fat.
Add all the remaining ingredients (except cheese) to the slow cooker with your meat. Turn on low for 6-8 hours.
When ready to serve, ladle soup in bowls and top with shredded cheese!
I love soup this time of year. Especially when it can be made in the crockpot! That’s a double win in my book!
Today’s recipe is like a “SUPREME” pizza soup. But feel free to add/remove ingredients for your family’s tastes!
I whipped up a side of easy refrigerated breadsticks to enjoy and dunk in our soup. Perfect.
