Taco Bell-style Mexican Pizza

    Taco Bell-style Mexican Pizza

    Mexican Pizza is a takeoff on the popular Taco Bell menu item that consists of fried tortillas, refried beans, taco meat, plenty of cheese, and all of your favourite taco toppings. It’s a simple twist on traditional tacos that’s sure to please.

    It tastes like a knockoff of Taco Bell’s Mexican pizza.

    For a long time, Mexican Pizza was one of Taco Bell’s most popular menu items, so when it was suddenly taken off, customers went crazy. HA. It seems like they temporarily reinstated it before taking it away again. To be quite honest, I am unsure of where things are right now… The good news is that you can recreate Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza right in your own kitchen by following this recipe!

    This Mexican Pizza is quite similar to the Taco Bell version, with refried beans and taco meat sandwiched between two crispy tortillas and covered with enchilada sauce, cheese, and other toppings. If you have any leftover taco meat on hand, these come together in a flash and are ready to eat in no time.

    Pizza toppings with a Mexican twist

    To make the greatest replica of Taco Bell’s Mexican pizza at home, use this list of ingredients, which is almost identical to the original.

    • Spiced ground beef Is a traditional taco filling.
    • Tortillas: Go for the 6-inch variety, which is perfect for tacos.
    • The tortillas need to be browned, so we’ll be using nonstick spray.
    • For refried beans, either low- or full-fat may be used.
    • Flavor it up with some enchilada or taco sauce. When making enchiladas, I like to use the sauce I make at home.
    • Cheddar or Colby Jack may do in a pinch, but authentic Mexican cheese is best.
    • The finishing touches: tomatoes and olives. We won’t tell anybody if you don’t want olives.

    Cookbook Twists

    A lot of different toppings may be used on this Taco Bell pizza, just as there are on tacos.

    • Incorporate some heat. Want some spice in your meal? Chopped jalapenos or spicy taco sauce are great additions.
    • Make do with ground turkey. You may substitute ground turkey with the ground beef if you choose.
    • Do the beans have to be included in the recipe? Yes, technically, but it will be very messy and impossible to eat without the beans. For want of a better word, the beans “glue” the meat together.
    • Vegetarianize it. Remove the ground beef from the recipe for a meat-free Mexican pizza.

    Which Is Healthier, a Tortilla Made with Flour or Corn?

    In making their Mexican pizza, does Taco Bell utilise wheat or corn tortillas? The pizzas were originally created using corn tortillas that were cooked until they were incredibly crispy, but the website now claims that they use flour tortillas. Whatever you find most convenient, go ahead and utilise it.

    Recipe for Mexican-Style Pizza

    Preparing one of these Taco Bell Mexican Pizzas is faster than using the drive-thru.

    • Warm up the tortillas in the oven. Spray the tortillas on both sides and fry them in a pan until they are golden. Cool.
    • Preparing the meat. The ground beef should be browned and the fat drained. Combine the taco seasoning with the water and stir.
    • Put together the rest of the components. In a small bowl, mix together the enchilada and taco sauces. Put the can of refried beans in the microwave and heat it up.
    • Put together the pizzas. Cover a tortilla with a layer of beans. Layer ground beef on a tortilla, then cover with another tortilla. Spread some enchilada sauce and cheese on top.
    • Bake. Cook until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
    • Put on the garnishes. Tomatoes and olives should be sprinkled on top of each pizza. Enjoy.


    Add some sofrito, salsa verde, or pico de gallo to your Taco Bell pizza for some added flavour. Toppings like sour cream are also fantastic.

    Although this is sufficient as a dinner, it is usually more enjoyable when accompanied by other traditional Mexican fare such as chips and guacamole. Plus, a margarita is the perfect accompaniment. (Give the youngsters some horchata.)


    Ideally, you should eat your Mexican pizzas right away, but if you have any leftovers, you can keep them in the refrigerator for up to two days; if possible, remove the olives and tomatoes before storing them so that they are simpler to reheat. Wrap them in foil or a cover to keep them safe. Put the pizza back in the oven for a few minutes to reheat it.

    • Package of taco seasoning, one
