Editors Note: Admittedly, this recipe does not taste exactly like Pizza. It does however deserve more than your typical and fairly bland “Italian Soup” label. For that reason we are spicing things up a bit and calling this Pizza Soup. We would however love to hear suggestions from our readers on an updated name.
