Crockpot Pizza Soup

10 Dec

My husband and I love pizza, we used to eat it a few times a month. Now that we live out in the country, our pizza eating has been cut short. Nobody delivers way out where we are. I was excited to try this recipe, and it didn’t disappoint. I have mentioned before that I love anything cooked in the crockpot. I work nights as a nurse, and when I work several nights in a row, it’s hard to find the inspiration to cook. I threw the ingredients in my crockpot this morning when I got home from work. This evening when I woke up it smelled like an Italian pizzeria in my kitchen. I couldn’t wait to have a bite! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
