I feel kinda funny calling this a recipe because it’s so dead easy. But I’ve made it three times, and every time, Dave exclaims about how delicious it is. Seems worth sharing.
The first time I made it, we’d just returned from Prague, along with the head colds we picked up on the airplane. I really wanted soup, but thought I didn’t have anything in the house to make some. I walked out of the kitchen forlornly, and Dave said, “I bet you’ll think of something.”
A few minutes later, I was back in the kitchen grabbing ingredients.
10-Minute Pizza Soup
Makes two generous servings.
2-3 Italian sausage links
half bag frozen chopped broccoli
3 cups broth (I like to use half beef, half chicken.)
14.5 oz. can chopped tomatoes (I like Muir Glen fire-roasted.)
2-3 teaspoons Penzeys Pizza Seasoning
1. Cut the sausage into coins, moons, or dice. I like to make moons, then halve them. They look like little slices of pizza!
2. Heat some olive oil in a saute pan and brown the sausage.
3. Add the canned tomatoes and the pizza seasoning. Stir to combine.
4. Pour in the broth, then add the broccoli. It can be frozen or defrosted; doesn’t matter.
5. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 10 minutes.
6. Ladle into deep bowls, then drizzle with a teaspoon of high-quality olive oil and a sprinkle of black pepper.
|It doesn’t look like much, but it’s super tasty!|
The small print:
Yes, you can make it with fresh broccoli and/or tomatoes, but then it’s not 10-minute soup ’cause of the chopping. Yes, you can use other kinds of meat or sausage. No, you don’t have to use Penzey’s Pizza Seasoning, but then it won’t taste like pizza. If you have some sliced mushrooms around, toss those in while browning the sausage = yum!
