Pizza is probably not what you think of when you think of comfort foods when you're sick, but for my family, we combine our love of pizza and soup and make PIZZA SOUP! It is delicious, warm, soothing, and creamy- pretty much the best combination ever when you're feeling chilly and under the weather. It's great because kids love it, and of course adults love it because who doesn't love pizza? A better question is, would you even want to know someone who didn't love pizza?
Here's what you need- (I make very big batches, so if you want to make this soup, just double everything up)
1 lb of lean ground beef
1 bag of pepperonis (I cut them all in half so there isn't giant pepperonis floating around in there)
1 28oz can of crushed tomatoes
2 tablespoons of tomato paste
1 box of chicken broth
1 block of cream cheese
1 green pepper (and if you're into mushrooms, you could add that too.)
1 clove of garlic
basil and oregano to taste
1. Cook up and drain your ground beef.
2. Sauté your chopped up green pepper, garlic, and tomato paste. This is where you'd sauté the mushrooms too if you so please.
3. Throw your ground beef, sautéed green peppers, canned crushed tomatoes, and box of chicken broth in a pot. Season to taste and bring to a boil.
4. Once hot enough throw in your cream cheese and mix in. It makes it like a bisque.
Feeling sick majorly sucks, it's true. And sometimes no matter how much comfort food you eat, you can't avoid feeling totally miserable. I personally love Kleenex tissues and whenever I need to buy some, I make sure to grab the aloe vera ones because they're like giving your face a cuddle. Super soft and literally the only tissues that don't make my nose sore. Anyway, here's a $1 off coupon for a Kleenex 4 pack or larger at Target!
