With flavors of pizza, this beef and pepperoni soup is tasty, filling, and comforting. It’s also very easy to put together and it can simmer while you make a salad and bread balls (or French bread rolls) to go with it.
I like to have a low carb soup like this that I can eat with a salad. I served it with bread balls, but didn’t eat any myself. I often do that with dinner. I eat the meat and vegetable part of the meal but make the starchier part of the meal for my family to enjoy. I always keep it gluten free though.
My family enjoyed this soup and thought that the pepperoni in it made it fun and flavorful.
