A Taco Bell favorite of mine, the descriptively named Mexican Pizza is Taco Bell's take on the pizza complete with a "pizza" sauce, melted cheese and toppings. A bit ironic since my local Taco Bell is also a /Pizza Hut where a Mexican Pizza can be had for $2.79 whereas a more traditional Personal Pan Pizza will run a bit more.

The Mexican Pizza is a purely Taco Bell creation and I have never seen anything like it anywhere else.  If pressed, I might describe it as a cross between a tostada and a quesadilla blended with an enchilada.

Or I might say, it features two crispy flour tortillas (Taco Bell calls them "pizza shells" but I never will) joined together by a layer of seasoned ground beef and refried beans, topped with a "pizza sauce", a blend of mozzarella, Cheddar, and Monterey Jack cheeses, and diced tomatoes. The "pizza sauce" is, from what my tongue tells me, a red enchilada sauce.

The Mexican Pizza is served cut into slices like a traditional pizza. Everything goes very well together; the flour tortillas are crisp but have some give to them, the beans help mute the over-seasoned beef, and the cheese and sauce give it a bit of enchilada flavor. I love these things! It's a dish with Mexican flavor that is distinctly Taco Bell, tasting altogether familiar but different.
