Topping ideas:

What to serve with Taco Bell Mexican Pizza recipe?

Taco Bell Mexican Pizza is a recipe that can be served by itself. My kids tend to make this for an afternoon snack. But if we do have it for dinner, we like to serve these sides to complete the meal:

Variations Ideas:

As with any pizza that you make, the options are endless when making this Mexican Pizza. Try these variations the next time you make this pizza:

  • If you don’t like refried beans you can omit them.
  • You can use, low carb tortilla instead if you wanting a low carb options.
  • Change up the meat – use chicken or ground turkey instead.
  • If we are out of flour tortillas, corn tortillas works great with this recipe too.
  • You can also make this a vegetarian option and load the mexican pizza up with all the veggies.
  • We like to top ours with a little taco sauce before serving.

Can you make ahead of time?

We typically don’t recommend making the actual mexican pizza ahead of time. But I would recommend having your toppings already prepared. If this is on my menu for the week, I will make sure that I have ground beef prepared.

This makes for an easy weeknight meal or lunch. My kids love when I have chicken or ground beef prepared as it is easy to make this. Even when my kids have friends over, this is their go-to late night snack.

Tips for Taco Bell Pizza:

Making Mexican Pizza is a fun way to change up Taco Tuesday. This is a quick and easy meal idea. Here are some tips to help make this a recipe great for your family too:

  • Whatever type of tortilla you use, just make sure that you make them crispy. We feel like it just holds everything together and it doesn’t make a soggy pizza.
  • Some of my kids like to put cheese in the middle as well as on on top. They feel like putting in the middles keeps the pizza together.
  • If you are making this a vegetarian pizza, make sure to buy the vegetarian refried beans.
  • We like spicy foods, so we will use hot enchilada sauce or a mixture of medium and hot sauce. You can even top with some jalapeno’s for some extra flavoring.
