Pizza Soup

Author: Canadian Living

Brimming with the kids' favourite pizza flavours, this soup is a hot lunch to dream about during math class, from our February, 2005 "Mealtimes Made Easy" story. Shredded mozzarella cheese for the top and a buttered whole grain roll are welcome and filling additions.
