Tips for Making Pizza Soup
Meats | Feel free to play around with what meats you want to use within the soup. I enjoy this trio of meats, but you don’t have to use them all if you are not a fan of one.
Pre-Cook Meat | I like to precook my bacon and sausage to help eliminate the extra grease in the soup. Now if you don’t mind the grease than feel free to add it in and let it cook right in the soup. You won’t get that crunchy texture from the bacon if you don’t pre-cook it.
Pizza Sauce | I get asked a lot what sauce to use. There is no set pizza sauce you have to use, just reach for a quality sauce that you and your family enjoys!
Can You Make Pizza Soup On The Stove Top
Yes, you can make pizza soup on the stove top! Just cook up your meats, until done. Drain off extra grease, and then put in all the other ingredients. Allow it to simmer on low for at least 1 hour to help blend the flavors and serve.
The one thing about this soup is the longer it cooks, the more the flavors blend and give you a more vibrant soup. That is why I reach for the slow cooker, but you can indeed cook on the stove top.
Does Pizza Soup Freeze Well
You can freeze your pizza soup, and reheat it with ease. Just hold off on putting the mozzarella cheese on top of the soup, until you are ready to eat it. Place your soup in a freezer bag, or do an airtight container. Then freeze up to three months.
For reheating allow it to thaw in the fridge the night before, and then pour in your slow cooker or pan on the stove to warm up. Then serve and enjoy like it was night one.
Single Serve Containers
One tip I wanted to share is if you love to meal prep, consider buying single-serve containers. This is a great way to freeze up your leftover soup, so then you can grab a container and take to work for a warm lunch. Just toss in the microwave at work and then dive in! I do this often since I can’t eat a whole thing of soup, so I eat some that night, and then spoon individual servings and freeze the rest.
If you are like me and love pizza and soup than this recipe right here is a home run. We have made this to serve a crowd and just for my family. Everyone that has tried the pizza soup is always raving about it. Best of all, minimal work is required to get that incredible flavor of pizza in a soup form!
