Retro Desperate: Campbell's Soup Pizza

Now you know that in a pinch you can substitute Campbell's Tomato Soup for pizza sauce.



Campbell's Soup Pizza
1967 recipe from vintage Campbell's advertising

1 can (10 3/4 oz.) Campbell's Tomato Soup
1 small clove minced garlic (if desired)
1 1/2 tsp. oregano, crushed
12-inch unbaked pizza shell
1 tbsp. salad oil
4 slices (4 oz.) Mozzarella cheese

In saucepan, combine soup, garlic (if you have no date)* and oregano; heat to blend flavors. Brush pizza shell with oil. Spread soup mixture over shell; top with cheese. Garnish as desired with sliced frankfurters, olives or mushrooms. Bake at 400˚F for 20 minutes. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

*Campbell's words, not mine.

Another Retro Twofer: Pizza Hawaiiana and Pineapple Cream Cheese Pie

I'm guessing these recipes came from the 1960s or earlier. Because, you see, my dear Watson, the first recipe calls for "catsup" and by the 70s most Americans referred to the condiment as "ketchup." Elementary. 

Recipe 4


Pizza Hawaiiana

Split English muffins. Spread with ketchup or tomato paste. Cover with a slice of cheddar cheese and chopped salami. Top with drained crushed pineapple. Sprinkle with oregano. Bake in a 400˚ oven for 15 minutes.
