  • 1 tbsp ghee

  • 454g (454g) hot Italian sausages, casings removed

  • 6 cups chicken bone broth, divided

  • 3 celery stalks, diced

  • ½ cup diced onions

  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 cups cauliflower florets, cut into ½-inch pieces

  • 1 cup diced zucchini

  • 1 red bell pepper, diced

  • 1 tsp minced fresh rosemary

  • 1 tsp minced fresh sage

  • 1 tsp minced fresh thyme

  • ½ tsp fine sea salt

  • ½ tsp ground black pepper

  • ½ cup pizza sauce, homemade

  • 1 bay leaf

  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


  • In a Dutch oven or stockpot, melt the ghee over medium heat. Cook for about 6 minutes, breaking up the sausage into small chunks as it browns. Remove the sausage from the pot with a slotted spoon when it is fully cooked. Place it in a mixing bowl and set it aside.
  • Scrape the bottom of the pot with a spatula to deglaze it with 1/4 cup of the chicken broth. Cook, stirring frequently, until the celery, onions, and garlic are translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Combine the cauliflower, zucchini, bell pepper, herbs, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Cook for another 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Combine the remaining broth, pizza sauce, and bay leaf in a mixing bowl. Simmer for 8 minutes on medium heat. Cook for another 10 minutes after adding the cooked sausage. If necessary, taste and adjust the seasoning.
  • Remove the bay leaf and set it aside. If desired, garnish the soup with chopped parsley.
  • Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Reheat for a few minutes over medium heat, or until warmed through.
