After being removed from the menu, brought back under pressure, and then a break to "replenish" supplies, Taco Bell's Mexican Pizza is on its way back.
Taco Bell announced Tuesday that the Mexican Pizza will go back on sale on September 15.
In late May, Taco Bell said, "Turns out we underestimated how many of you love Mexican Pizza. 7x more than we expected, to be exact," the company tweeted. "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 Mexican Pizza is made with two crispy flour shells, layered with beans, pizza sauce, seasoned beef, tomatoes and a melted cheese blend.
The Mexican Pizza was removed for the first time in 2020 in order to leave a "lighter footprint on our planet" as "Mexican Pizza packaging accounts for over 7 million pounds of paperboard material per year in the U.S.," Taco Bell said at the time.
But after nearly 200,000 signatures in a Change.org petition, Mexican Pizza returned on Thursday, May 19.
The fast food chain told Forbes in May that the Mexican Pizza was still being served in a paperboard box, and said it encourages customers to recycle.
