Frequently Asked Questions:
Yes, this air fried taco bell’s Mexican pizza tastes great without the ground beef! Just add some extra refried beans or black beans and enjoy a meatless meal.
Make sure your beans aren't too liquidy; it's okay for them to be runny, but not so runny. Spread some salsa over the beans, but not so much that the tortillas become soggy.
The Taco Bell Pizza was discontinued for a number of reasons, one of the most was the packaging. The packaging was so large, because of the size of the pizza.

Dip In Your Favorite Sauce
How to Make Keto Mexican Pizza
- First, brown the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions and seasonings and cook for three more minutes until onions are translucent. If the taco meat is dry, add ½ cup of water to make it saucy. Set aside.
- Next, brush the tortilla with vegetable oil and then air fry for 2 minutes on each side at 370 degrees F. Repeat the process for the rest of the tortillas. Set aside.
Assemble the Pizza
- Now, place one tortilla on a flat surface, spread refried beans on the tortilla, and then taco meat, followed by tomatoes, cheese, and enchilada sauce.
- Then, add the other tortilla on top, and spread the enchilada sauce over the top. Sprinkle with more cheese.
- After that, air fry at 400 degrees for 3-4 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
- Finally, slice and serve with your favorite toppings.
- Kid friendly: You can omit the jalapenos and replace the enchilada sauce with another sauce of your choice to make this pizza kid friendly.
- Toppings: Use any toppings you desire. Black beans, chicken, jalapenos, onions, steak, seasoned rice, red tortilla strips, lettuce, and additional cheese are among the add-ons that are offered on the actual menu.
You will need Cosori air fryer.
Store the cooked ground beef in an airtight container for up to three or four days once it has been chilled. Don't assemble the pizza until you're ready to eat it since tortillas will get soggy in the fridge.
You can freeze the seasoned ground beef easily. Keep it in the freezer for up to three months in an airtight container.
Place the frozen meat in the refrigerator overnight to defrost. Wait until you're ready to eat the pizza before assembling it. Once assembled, I do not recommend freezing it.
Spice Up Your Regular Menu
- You can prepare this keto Mexican pizza ahead of time to make it a quick grab-and-go dinner. Cook the taco meat ahead of time, and you'll have this quick dinner ready in no time!
- The ground beef will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. If you use cold, leftover taco meat, add 2-3 minutes to the cooking time of these Mexican pizzas.
- Vegetarian: If you want to make this keto Mexican pizza vegetarian, just double up on the refried beans, and it will still be protein-packed. Also use vegan cheese.
- Gluten Free: If you want to make this recipe gluten free, use gluten free tortillas.
