Mexican Pizza

Mexican Pizza – a homemade version of the famous Taco Bell Mexican Pizza, only better!  Super easy and a fun dinner the whole family will love. 

I used to love Taco Bell. I am pretty sure it was because you could get so much food for so little money, but their crunchy tacos were my favorite!  Then one day I discovered the Taco Bell Mexican Pizza and I was hooked!

The nice thing about this is you can customize it however you want.  If you don’t like beans, don’t add them.  If you really like black olives, add them.  It is up to you! Back when this first came out at Taco Bell it included black olives.

Flour Or Corn Tortillas

I call for flour in this recipe, because that is what I like.  But you can definitely use corn.  I believe that Taco Bell uses flour and then fries them to get them super crispy.  So if you want it a little more “authentic” and more like Taco Bell, then use flour.

If you read the comment section below there are a few former employees who commented. It sounds like what they used may have changed over the years or maybe region of the country. So whatever tortilla you like, you can get it crispy and it works great. 

I have been making this Mexican pizza for years, and it is such a fun way to mix up taco night.  It is easy to make and have everything on hand, plus the whole family will love it!  Plus like a lot of copycat recipes, this is so much better than the original!  You know what  the ingredients are and get to use your favorites!

This Taco Bell Mexican Pizza recipe is really simple to make, you just need few ingredients and a few minutes and you are done.
