If you know me AT ALL, or follow my instagram, you know there is a serious pizza love going on with me and my family. Wyatt requests it on the daily, and I pretty much crave it at all times. So, naturally I would love a soup that's main ingredients are pizza condiments. This pizza soup is soooooooooo good ya'll! Like, SO GOOD! It's one of my husband's favorite things I make.
Here's what you need- (I make very big batches, so if you want to make this soup, just double everything up)
1 lb of lean ground beef
1 bag of pepperonis (I cut them all in half so there isn't giant pepperonis floating around in there)
1 28oz can of crushed tomatoes
2 tablespoons of tomato paste
1 box of chicken broth
1 block of cream cheese
1 green pepper (and if you're into mushrooms, you could add that too. BUT I HATE MUSHROOMS.)
1 clove of garlic
basil and oregano to taste
1. Cook up and drain your ground beef.
2. Sauté your chopped up green pepper, garlic, and tomato paste. This is where you'd sauté the mushrooms too if you so please, but GOD WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO ADD MUSHROOMS?!
3. Throw your ground beef, sautéed green peppers, canned crushed tomatoes, and box of chicken broth in a pot. Season to taste and bring to a boil.
4. Once hot enough throw in your cream cheese and mix in. It makes it like a bisque.
NOW SERVE! YOU'RE WELCOME!
We eat ours with breadsticks to complete the meal.
