These easy Mexican Pizzas are even BETTER (and healthier) than the ones you love from Taco Bell! You can now satisfy your craving anytime!

My husband loves Taco Bell, and it was because of him that I ever tried their Mexican Pizza. I love this copycat recipe because it uses higher quality ingredients and they’re easy to make.

Ingredients in Mexican Pizza:

How to make Mexican Pizza:

  • Cook ground beef. Add taco seasoning and water and stir to combine.
  • Cook corn tortillas. Lightly pan fry them in a little bit of oil.
  • Assemble. Spoon a thin layer of enchilada sauce on top of one corn tortilla, spread refried beans on and top with a spoonful of taco meat.  Sprinkle cheese over the meat and place a second corn tortilla on top. Spread thin layer of enchilada sauce on top of the tortilla and sprinkle with more cheese.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  • Garnish with olives, tomatoes, green onion and sour cream. Cut into wedges to serve.

I think these homemade Mexican Pizzas taste best warm from the oven, but feel free to store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to a week. You can reheat them in the oven, air fryer, in a skillet on the stove, or in the microwave.

  1. Can these Mexican tacos be frozen and reheated or made and freeze after the topping is put on then defrost add cheese and bake

  2. I made the Mexican Pizza tonight using ground turkey. It was very good. Next time I’ll still use the air fryer to cook it all & melt the cheese, but temp on 350-375. Bc I almost overcooked the cheese! This will be a new dish and remake it ! Thank you 👍👍.

  3. Mexican pizza I think you could garnish it with a slice of jalepino instead of black olive or both kick it up a notch

  4. 5 stars
    I totally improvised with what I had on hand, but appreciated the inspiration to make this really easy, filling and tasty meal. It WAS better than Taco Bell too!
