Sometimes you have tough decisions, like whether you'll have a pizza or soup. With this homemade Pizza Soup recipe, you don't have to decide; you can have both! This soup is chunky and stick-to-your-bones good. That's because we used savory Italian sausage, sweet green bell peppers, tomato paste, and diced tomatoes for acidity. The mushrooms add an extra layer of meatiness and umami flavors. Finally, we added beef broth for even more flavor and heavy cream for richness.

But it gets even better. This pizza, ahem, Pizza Soup, is low in carbs. So it's great if you're following a low-carb lifestyle. And it's pretty easy to make as you're using an Instant Pot. This may become one of your favorite recipes for the cold winter weather.

What goes with pizza soup?

For an extra layer of cheesiness, feel free to add some grated Parmesan cheese. If you want some texture to the soup, feel free to add low-carb croutons or pork rinds. Or serve with low-carb garlic bread. Yum!
