This is a simple and delicious soup that gives you the tastes of a supreme pizza, in a bowl. It will satisfy all the little ninjas in your life.
My girlfriend told me about a pizza soup she gets once in a while at her work cafeteria, but it’s been a really long time since they had it. So I decided to try putting something together that would be similar to what she described. It’s basically a chili but has no beans, and most of the ingredients are things you’d find in a slice of pizza!
It works great in the Instant Pot, but could easily be made in a Crock Pot or slow cooker as well.
This soup is a pizza party in a bowl, and everybody is invited!
1lbground hot Italian sausage (thawed)(use mild if you don’t like the heat)
1green pepper (diced)
1can diced tomatoes
1cansliced black olives (drained)
1cansliced mushrooms (drained)
1/2packagepepperoni (cut into quarters)
crushed red pepper(optional)
Turn Instant Pot to saute function and brown the sausage. Drain if needed. As it nears completion, add the garlic, onions and green pepper to let them cook together for a few moments. Use a spatula and make sure to scrape up any bits that are sticking to the bottom of the pot.
Stir in oregano, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, black olives, mushrooms, pepperoni and beef broth.
Close the Instant Pot lid, and set to high pressure cook for 15 minutes.
After cooking is finished, allow it to naturally release for at least 10 minutes before doing a quick release.
Serve topped with crushed red pepper (if desired) and mozzarella cheese.
