Fall is back and so is soup season! The chilly weather in Colorado means that we are eating lots of soup until about May, so I have to get creative with different kinds. I am a big believer that you can turn many different recipes into soup and it will be delicious. This Pizza Soup is no different.
I took many of my favorite pizza toppings (ones that at least would be good in a soup) and threw them into a pot. I have mushrooms, olives, sausage, onions, etc. The great thing about this soup is you can add or subtract any toppings you don't like, just like you can on a pizza. The gluten-free noodles play the roll of the crust and makes it a bit more filling.This soup will also freeze great if you don't add the noddles to it. Save the noodles for when you are re-heating it again and you will have the perfect freezer-friendly meal.
This recipe is a super easy week-night meal, but also would be delicious for a group of people. I would serve this on a game day or just for a dinner for my friends and family.
Tips for Pizza Soup:
- To make this Whole30, add potatoes instead of noodles, or any other kind of veggie noodle.
- Add or remove any veggies you don't want.
- I like ground pork sausage the best in this recipe, but any ground meat will do.
- Like I mentioned, I like to cook the noddles separately and add them in at the end but this is optional. If you want a one pot meal, cook them right in the same pot.
