  • 1 (16 oz) package Italian sausage mild, medium, or hot
  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 large yellow onion diced
  • 1 (8 oz) container mushrooms diced
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt plus more to taste (I used 1 teaspoon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (14 oz) jar pizza sauce
  • 1 (6 oz) package pepperonis quartered
  • 1/2 cup finely grated parmesan
  • Shredded cheese for serving (I used a pizza cheese blend: mozzarella, provolone, parmesan, asiago, fontina, and romano)


  • Heat a large stockpot over medium heat.
  • Once hot, add in Italian sausage, bell pepper, onion, mushrooms, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, dried oregano, dried basil, salt, and pepper.
  • Cook, breaking up the meat as you go, until the sausage is no longer pink.
  • Stir in the chicken broth, scraping up any brown bits, then stir in the diced tomatoes, pizza sauce, pepperoni, and parmesan.
  • Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally to prevent the cheese from sticking to the bottom.
  • Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Taste and re-season, if necessary.
  • Ladle into bowls, then top each bowl of soup with a generous amount of shredded cheese and enjoy!
