Pepperoni Pizza Soup

  • 1 lb extra lean ground beef
  • 24 slices turkey pepperoni, cut into small pieces
  • 1 Medium Green Bell Pepper, diced
  • 1 tbsp minced onion (or full onion, chopped)
  • 2 cups Water
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes, divided*
  • 1 can tomato sauce*
  • 1 small can of sliced mushrooms
  • 1 can water (use the diced tomatoes can)
  • 1 beef bouillon cube
  • 1– 1½ Tbsp Dried Italian Seasoning
  • Shredded reduced fat Mozzarella Cheese, for topping

Directions:
  1. Blend 1 can diced tomatoes with can tomato sauce in a blender to make pizza sauce. *You can substitute a jar of pre-made pizza sauce, but it will change the nutrition info.
  2. Brown hamburger in a large pot; drain. Return hamburger to pot and add all remaining ingredients except mozzarella cheese.
  3. Simmer on medium about 25 minutes.
  4. Serve in bowls, topped with mozzarella.

Topping with 1 slice 2% mozzarella cheese adds 50 calories. I actually put some fat free string cheese on mine, and it was good.
