Here is the original from Cooks.com:

1 lb. Italian sausage (skin removed)
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. chopped green pepper
2 tbsp. oregano
1 tsp. garlic powder
30 oz. pizza sauce
2 c. canned tomatoes, diced
1 1/2 qts. water
3 tbsp. beef base
12 pieces French bread
12 slices Mozzarella cheese or shredded Mozzarella cheese
Cook sausage, onion, green pepper, oregano and garlic powder until sausage is brown. Add pizza sauce, tomatoes, water and base. Simmer 1 hour. Place 1 slice toasted French bread in bottom of soup bowl. Add soup; top with cheese. Broil 5 to 10 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned. Makes 12 servings.
I followed this recipe the first time except I didn’t use beef base or the french bread in the bottom of the bowl. And we just added cheese on top without broiling.
Tonight I adjusted it to:
1# italian sausage (skin removed)
1/2 cup green onion
3/4 c cauliflower (I chopped it up really fine in my manual food processor)
1/3-1/2 cup pepperoni
2 Tbsp oregano
1 tsp garlic & herb rub
1 tsp cumin
1 1/2 qt water
30 oz pizza sauce
2 (14.5 oz cans) petite diced tomatoes
3 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
cheese of choice to sprinkle on at the end
I followed the same directions of cooking the sausage and veggies with seasonings. Then I added all the “wet” ingredients. Again, I sprinkled cheese on the end, but didn’t broil it. So yummy!
