Pizza soup

About 10 years ago I went out to lunch with a few co-workers and had the most interesting soup I have ever tasted in my life, pizza soup.  I raved on and on about it to my husband and we have gone back to that same restaurant several times since then and they have never had it again.  For 10 years I have still been able to taste that soup and I have craved it many, many times.

I searched online for pizza soup recipes and didn’t find any that seemed to be like the one I decided to mix and match, taking clues from several recipes I found.   I think I NAILED IT! I couldn’t believe I got it perfect on the first try, I am not much of a kitchen scientist, but I did! Here is my recipe for pizza soup.  Enjoy!
