Pizza Soup and so long to plans of Hawaii!

Well the Army decided Hawaii was not the place for us to live next. We are currently in Limbo awaiting a new assignment. We are hoping to find out sometime in the next few weeks where we are going next. Tess is now living in Missouri with her Oma, looking for work and getting ready to start Community College. The rest of us are just keeping busy with school and general life.
I made some Pizza Soup today... and it was super yummy! I decided to share the recipe here.


Pizza Soup - a delicious tomato soup.

Large can of diced or crushed tomatoes (28 oz)
Can of diced seasoned tomatoes (italian seasoned)
Can of pizza sauce
Can of tomato sauce (8 oz)
Can of tomato paste
Chicken Broth (2 cups)
Italian Seasoning (your choice how much)
1/2 tbsp sugar
garlic (again how much you like)

Salt and Pepper to taste

1 cup of shredded Italian Cheese
Pizza toppings of your choice (I used mushrooms, onion, green bell pepper, olives, pepperoni, italian sausage)

Place the first set of ingredients in the crock pot (or in a pot on the stove). Cook on low for 4 hours. Then stir in the cheese. If you like cheese pizza wait 10-15 minutes then enjoy. If you like other toppings stir them in. I let mine cook for another 2 hours to cook the veggies through.

I served this up with garlic breadsticks and the whole family enjoyed. I also made a pot for my friend with lactose intolerance and just omitted the cheese.  How do you like your pizza soup?
