How to make Slow Cooker Pizza Soup
Begin by preparing the vegetables, and dice the tomatoes, onions, and green peppers into small chunks. Also, chop up the olives and mushrooms as well.
In a large skillet, cook the sausage and onions together until cooked through and slightly browned. While cooking, break up the sausage into small chunks, when done drain the excess fats, and pour into the slow cooker.
Next, add the diced tomatoes, green peppers, olives, and mushrooms to the crockpot. Then pour in the tomato soup and water, and stir to combine.
Then, add the sliced pepperoni to the mixture. You can cut the slices in half or keep them whole, whatever you prefer.
Lastly, add all the seasonings to the mixture, the basil, oregano, onion, and garlic powder. Stir well to combine all the ingredients together.
Proceed to cook on low heat for 4-5 hours or on high for 2-3 hours.
Serve immediately, if desired, top with mozzarella and/or parmesan cheese, and enjoy!

What to serve alongside Pizza Soup?
If you want to serve this soup as a main dish, adding a side will help make it a nice full meal. My favorite thing to serve with this amazing soup is a type of bread. My family loves this braided garden herb bread, it is devoured quickly. Another great option that would be great when feeding a crowd is cheesy breadsticks. They are so incredible and easy to make. If you happen to be making this around Christmas time, this fun and festive puff pastry would be a huge hit with your family.
CAN I MAKE THIS SOUP VEGETARIAN OR VEGAN?
