Calling all Taco Bell fans!
After months of waiting, the Mexican Pizza is finally back at Taco Bell starting Thursday, Sept. 15 – but there’s a way you can get one before it’s released on menus nationwide.
What’s the secret?
Early access to the popular Mexican Pizza is available to order in the Taco Bell app for members of the company's rewards program on Tuesday and Wednesday (Sept. 13-14).
Its return is just part of the Mexican Pizza saga that unfolded in recent months...
The Mexican Pizza returned earlier this year on May 19 after it was dropped from Taco Bell’s menu back in November of 2020. Demand for the product was so high, however, that Taco Bell had to remove it from the menu just weeks later in order to restock ingredients.
“Turns out we underestimated how many of you love Mexican Pizza. 7x more than we expected, to be exact,” Taco Bell tweeted on May 31. “We are working as fast as we can to restock Mexican Pizza ingredients. We’ll need some time to replenish our supplies, but when it comes back, we promise it’s here to stay.”
The fast food chain vows the Mexican Pizza is now back for good.
In case you forgot… The Mexican Pizza is made up of two crispy flour shells, layered with beans, pizza sauce, seasoned beef, tomatoes and a melted three cheese blend.
It’s listed at $4.49 with 540 calories.
