The Rumors Are True: Taco Bell Is Bringing Back Its Mexican Pizza


Although a pizza might seem like a stretch for a Mexican fast food joint, Taco Bell's gained a cult following quickly after it's 1985 introduction (via YouTube). Fan reaction was swift and furious regarding the cancellation of the Mexican Pizza which consisted of seasoned ground beef and refried beans sandwiched between two crisp "pizza shell" tostadas (via Taco Bell). All that yum is covered up in diced tomatoes, a three-cheese blend, and a pizza sauce that's delightfully spicy. Since the original version (made without beef) is American Vegetarian Associated certified, it's easy to see why this dish was so popular.

As a result, there has been much speculation about a Mexican Pizza comeback ever since the November 2020 cancellation. Now that we have an answer to that age-old question, it's time to rediscover the Taco Bell Mexican Pizza, 2022-style.
