Fast food restaurant breaking news!

After a nearly two-year absence (with just a brief reappearance in May), the fate of Taco Bell’s beloved Mexican Pizza is finally clear. The company has announced that the Mexican Pizza will be returning to menus nationwide on September 15. Even better, Taco Bell has promised to grant the Mexican Pizza a permanent spot on its menu!

Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza was initially removed in November 2020 as part of the company’s pandemic survival strategy to streamline its menu. When it returned in May, demand was seven times higher than expected, causing the chain to sell out just two weeks after the relaunch.

The Taco Bell Mexican Pizza is made of beans, pizza sauce, seasoned beef, tomatoes, and melted cheese layered in between two crispy flour shells. Even vegetarians can enjoy the Mexican Pizza, as Taco Bell makes it easy to customize any entrée to omit meat!

Stetson grabbed a Mexican Pizza in May and loved it!

Haha, “Mexican pizza?!?? Ummm yes, please. Two of my favorite things combined into one at one of my favorite fast-food restaurants, Taco Bell! This delicious and not-so-nutritious meal was perfect for an afternoon lunch.

Since this was my first time ever tasting it, I wanted to see what all the buzz was about. Honestly, for it being kind of small, I am actually pretty full. It’s a blend of Taco Bell magic in a pizza-like shape made for a perfect combination!

Taco Bell also recently announced a new sustainability practice!

This initiative includes a sauce packet recycling program with the help of TerraCycle. This supports their commitment to having all recyclable, compostable, or reusable packaging by 2025. We do love those Taco Bell sauces, so how amazing would it be for the packaging to not harm the planet?

Are you as excited about the Mexican Pizza’s triumphant return as we are?! Let us know!
