Now this is a tasty tasty treat! It is simple to make, and full of flavor. We used rotel for the diced tomatoes, and served it with grilled ham and cheese sandwiches. Very filling! I must say that I really enjoyed scraping the built up cheese off of the spoon, it was like a little added bonus! We will certainly make this soup again, it was really very good :)
This was very easy and quick to make. I made some changes so it would be vegetarian. I left out the pepperoni and added some navy beans, corn and green peas. I also subbed vegetable broth for the chicken broth. I used twice the amount of garlic. The result was a simple and delicious dinner. I served it with garlic french bread. Thanks for sharing your recipe truebrit.
I hate to burst such a good record of reviews, but I simply cannot understand how this got so many 5 star ratings. We hated it! It had a very bad taste, and in no way did it come close to tasting like pizza. Sorry.
