I am on a mission to turn all of my favorite foods into soup recipes. Eating your favorite take out foods as a soup is super convenient because the meal tastes even better the next day, is great for meal prep, and freezer friendly too.

🥩What Type of Meat to Use

I use organic, grass-finished beef, Italian Sausage, and pepperoni. You can also use ground turkey, ground sausage, ground chicken, or whatever you like. You can also make this a meatless soup if you wish.

My preference is uncured nitrate-free pepperoni. It’s made without the added preservatives that come with most processed deli meat.

🍅What Type of Sauce to Use

You can use my Homemade Marinara Sauce Recipe here or grab any of your favorite store-bought sauce. Marinara sauce or pizza sauce will work.

Marinara sauce is a lot thicker than pizza sauce since pizza sauce is meant to spread over crust. I prefer to use marinara in this recipe for that reason…because I like thick soup. Marinara sauce also typically has more flavor.

Freezer Tips

You can freeze this soup. I like to use these freezer molds from Amazon. It allows you to freeze the soup in individual portions. Defrost overnight in the fridge.

This was delicious! I had a pizza craving this week but trying to cut back on carbs, this hit the spot! I substituted Turkey Italian sausage for the beef and it was perfect.

I made this soup today for lunch! Just like the title says, easy. It was full of flavor, too. This will definitely be in the Fall/Winter soup rotation.
