Slow Cooker Pepperoni Pizza Soup

Happy National Soup Swap Day! It’s seriously one of my favorite days of the year.

I mean, really, what is better than getting together with your friends on a chilly January Saturday and eating lots of soup?

This Slow Cooker Pepperoni Pizza Soup is my contribution to this year’s soup swap. Since it’s essentially pizza in a bowl, it’s a crowd pleaser – and especially a hit with the kids.

Pepperoni not your favorite pizza topping? It can easily be switched out for anything that tickles your fancy. I think next time, we’ll be shooting for a Supreme Pizza Soup, and adding in olives, peppers, and onions.

I’m also hosting a virtual soup swap today with some of my blogger friends. If you’re looking for soups to keep you warm this winter, we have you covered!
