    Pizza with a Mexican Twist

    I can hardly wait to FINALLYYYY give you all the details on how to make authentic Mexican pizza at home!!! I apologize profusely for the extended wait; I have no explanation for the delay. From what I see in my Instagram stories, this seems to be one of the most requested recipes.

    Now that you have my recipe, I’d want to point out that you may change it up as you wish. I don’t care whether you prepare your beans from scratch or use store-bought sauce, cheese, or other toppings; it’s all good. I’ve probably had a hundred questions about the tortilla brand I use, and I’m sorry to say that I can only recommend Azteca. The states of New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania are not likely to have them. Because they are widely available in Chicago, my cousin often brings back a supply for our family. Those are the tortillas you want to cook for this dish, so if you live in an area where they are available, go ahead and get to it. Going to Taco Bell and inquiring about purchasing their Mexican Pizza shells is another option. It’s something we used to do all the time, and in the end, it saved you time and effort, so it was a win-win.

    The sauce I use is another hot topic of inquiry. What I really use is the bottled TACO BELL HOT SAUCE from Walmart. Everyone who hasn’t already gone out and purchased them should do so immediately.

    Because I hate having to wait for the oven to heat up, I usually simply reheat them in the microwave. The shells are always pre-fried and stored in a container, and all the other Mexican ingredients can be found in the fridge, making this a quick and easy meal. If that’s the case, I’m not waiting for the oven to heat up. sorry.

    Beans may be prepared in any way you desire… But now you know my method to the T! If you make Mexican pizza, pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee


    • Twelve corn tortillas
      A single green bell pepper (finely diced)
    • Mexican Cheese, 2 Cups (shredded)
    • 2 scallions (finely sliced)
    • Hot sauce from Taco Bell, 1 bottle
    • 2 peppers


    • 1 tablespoon of oil
    • a half of a white onion (finely diced)
    • 1 finely diced jalapeo
    • (You’ll need four garlic cloves for this recipe.
    • 14 cup of salsa
    • Taco Seasoning, 3 Tablespoons
    • Can of Vegetarian Refried Beans, 16 oz.



    • Oil for frying Azteca tortillas should be heated in a big saucepan large enough to completely immerse the tortilla.
    • Make slits in the tortillas and cook them in oil until they are crispy. When they are done, remove them and place them on a paper towel to cool.


    • Oil should be heated over medium heat in a small saucepan. White onion and jalapeño peppers should be added. Keep an eye on it and cook for another minute or two.
    • After that, stir in the garlic, salsa, and taco spice. Combine everything well.
    • Pour some water over the refried beans to help them soften, and stir them in. A half cup of water is what I use, but adjust the amount to taste.

    Making Mexican pizzas from scratch

    • Spread a quarter cup of the beans on the bottom crust.
    • Sprinkle some cheese on top, and then sprinkle on some spicy sauce and distribute it about. Put the lid back on and secure it.
    • Three tablespoons of the taco bell sauce should be spread on the top of each Mexican pizza.
    • Spread a quarter cup of cheese on top. Toss in some chile peppers, green onions, and bell peppers.
    • Cook for 2 minutes in the microwave. Cut into four bite-sized pieces and serve with your preferred fiery hot sauce.
