Taco Bell Mexican Pizza

Raven Higheagle


I love getting the Mexican pizza from Taco Bell. The perfect late night snack! It is really easy to prepare this at home and is a great dinner or snack idea to make when you have leftovers from a taco dinner.

How to Make Taco Bell Mexican Pizza


  1. In a large skillet, brown the beef over medium heat.
  2. Once cooked, drain the excess fat from the pan.
  3. Add salt, onions, paprika, black pepper, chili powder and water, then let the mixture simmer over medium heat for 8-10 minutes. Stir frequently.
  4. Heat the Crisco shortening in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. If the oil is smoking, it is too hot.
  5. Fry each tortilla for about 45 seconds per side, or until golden brown and let drain on paper towels.
  6. Heat up the refried beans in a small saucepan. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  7. To assemble the pizza:
    Spread about 1/3 cup refried beans on face of one tortilla.
  8. Next spread 1/4 of meat, then another tortilla.
  9. Coat the tortillas with two tablespoons of salsa, then split up the tomatoes and stack them on top.
  10. Next divide up the cheese, onions and olives, stacking in that order.
  11. Place pizzas on a sheet pan and in the oven for about 8 minutes or until cheese on top is melted.
