This hearty pizza soup will be loved by adults and kids alike! This tomato-based soup is filled pizza favorites like Italian sausage, pepperoni, and spices. The toasted puff pastry croutons are like bits of “crust” just floating on top!
Here we are at the beginning of new year wondering what resolutions we should make. My standard resolution has been “to be a better person.” I’ve decided that is just a cop out. Don’t we all try to be better people? I’ve never been one to set goals, but part of my resolution is to set goals for myself. I’ve never been a goal setter and by the end of each year, I get frustrated with myself for things I wasn’t able to achieve. Setting goals is one resolution.

My second resolution is to be confident. Social media has played with my emotions and insecurities for far too long. Let’s be real; everyone puts the best version of themselves (real or exaggerated) on Facebook. No one is perfect all the time. People rarely show their vulnerabilities or their fears. They show pictures of themselves with the hopes that other people’s comments will feed their ego, cure their insecurities, or validate them. Over time, even the most resilient of us feel inadequate. This year I will not feel inadequate. I will remember that I am enough. I will stay confident.
My last resolution is to be. Be in the moment; to focus. I would pride myself on the ability to multi-task. But all I was doing was dividing my attention just enough to perform each task with LESS focus. This year I will give my attention to one task at a time and I will perform that one task superbly.
All this talk about resolutions but I have to talk about this soup! This soup has nothing to do with New Year’s resolutions, but it does have to do with staying warm and cozy and feeding your family something amazing. Who doesn’t love pizza? This soup encompasses everything that makes pizza a family favorite. The Italian sausage, pepperoni, and seasoning fill the soup with that savory pizza flavor. The best part just might be the topping! Puff pastry is drizzled with olive oil, garlic, and Parmesan cheese and is lightly baked until golden. With a few of these tasty puffed croutons, it’s like your crust on top of your soup!
Happy New Year everyone!

How cute are those croutons! Love it. The soup sounds great too.
Okay, this is just pure awesomeness! Why did I not grow up eating this every day of my childhood! Yum!
First of all–LOVE the soup.
Secondly I am with you on the whole confident thing. I sorta hate that we have to live in social media as bloggers because it can do a number on a girl’s insecurities. But the bottom line is that we are each made different and no one is perfect.

This soup looks amazing! What a great idea!
So, Seattle has just learned what winter weather is apparently and we are craving every big warm bowl of goodness we can get our hands on. So this title peaked my interest, but the recipe blew me away! I love the creative ways you incorporated all of the key pizza components!! The cheesy puff pastry on top is brilliant! I want to try that with just about every soup now! 😉
