What's for dinner?

Crock pot Pizza Soup! I may have blogged about this before, but, it's worth mentioning it again! This is one of our family's favorite meals! Even the kids have more than one helping! Personally, I LOVE the crock pot! I'm starting to use it more and more because of the time it saves. The recipe for this Pizza Soup is below.....Enjoy!

***One more thing....visit Stephanie's A year of Slow Cooking Blog for tons of wonderful recipes for the crock pot! She also has a brand new cookbook coming out!

Crock pot Pizza Soup

1-1/4 cups sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 cups water
1 can (18 ounces) pizza sauce
1 cup chopped pepperoni
1 cup chopped fresh tomatoes or 1 can stewed tomatoes
1/2 cup cooked Italian sausage, out of casing and crumbled
1/4 tsp Italian seasoning (oregano, parsley, basil)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
shredded Mozzarella cheese
In large saucepan, saute onions and mushrooms in olive oil 2-3 minutes or until tender. Add everything to the crock pot except the cheese. Simmer on LOW 6-8 hours or HIGH 3-4 hours. Before serving, add Parmesan cheese and stir in. Garnish with mozzarella.
****I usually double the recipe so we have leftovers and I also add more meat to make it heartier. Serve it with garlic bread/toast. You could also add any other ingredients that you like on your pizza (bell peppers, olives etc......)
