So I know this may sound like a bazaar soup, but it truly has all the flavors of a bbq chicken pizza, especially topped with a little cheese! This was a super easy weeknight meal and Adam really loved it! I loved that it mostly contained pantry staples too, so it’s a great meal if you’ve forgotten to go to the store. Definitely a fun twist on traditional soup to warm you up during this polar vortex!
