Supreme Pizza Soup
Finally! A soup that kids and adults will like! Pizza favorites, like pepperoni and sausage, will have the kids jumping for joy. And with all the big chunks of fresh vegetables, Mom and Dad will be happy too
Stick pepperoni typically has a casing around the outside, which definitely should be removed before cooking. The easiest way to do this is to score down the length of the pepperoni with a knife, then peel away the casing.
Brown sausage and pepperoni in oil in a large pot over medium-high heat, about 5 minutes; drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Pour off all but 1 Tbsp. drippings and return pot to burner.
Add mushrooms and sauté until they release their juices, 3 minutes. Add onion, bell peppers, garlic, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper to the pot; cook mixture until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes.
Stir in tomatoes, broth, and olives along with the reserved meat mixture. Simmer soup until heated through, 10–12 minutes.
Sear the mushrooms in drippings until their edges begin to brown, then add onion and peppers.
Canned tomatoes work better than fresh for this soup. A no-salt variety reduces the sodium considerably.
