Easy Tomato Soup and Pizza

Happy President's Day! Today my sister and I went shopping. My mom always said as long as you had dinner ready there was no reason why you should not go shopping. I made this soup yesterday. I was ready to shop. The recipe is from the Family Celebrations With the Cake Boss. The name of the soup is Easy Tomato Soup. It is the perfect name for the recipe. Of course I did make a couple of adjustments.

My version of Easy Tomato Soup 
Ingredients -
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 can crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup heavy cream
kosher salt
freshly ground pepper

Method -
Heat a stock pot over medium heat. Add the butter and cook until it is melted and foamy. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened but not browned, about 4 minutes. Pour in the tomatoes, then stir in the stock. Raise the heat to high, bring to a boil, then lower the heat so the liquid is simmering. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally about 10 minutes. Stir in the cream, season with salt and pepper, and adjust the consistency with more cream or chicken stock.

I had taken pizza crust out of the freezer this weekend and decided to use up a couple of thinks the fridge. I had some of the sauteed rabe and onion and some fresh mozzarella and a fresh tomato. So we had a small pizza to go with our soup.
