How To Make the Pizza Soup Recipe:

  1. Pour the tomatoes with their juices into a food processor or blender and puree until smooth.
  2. In a medium sized pot, combine the pureed tomatoes and their juices with the chicken broth, salt, pepper and sugar. Heat on medium-high heat until the mixture starts to boil.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small glass, use a fork to whisk the milk and cornstarch together until the cornstarch has dissolved. Add this to the tomato mixture on the stove, just when that mixture begins to boil.
  4. Return contents of pot to a boil and cook, stirring constantly, for a minute or two until the soup thickens.
  5. Pour soup into serving bowls. Top each with an equal amount of diced cheese, pepperoni slices and croutons, and serve at once.

Note: This soup will also freeze well in an airtight container. Omit the toppings in step 5 when freezing, and add these only after soup has been reheated and is in bowls ready to serve.
