  • used enchilada sauce instead of salsa.  It tasted just like Taco Bell's!  My hubby thought I got them there but noticed how big the tortillas were!!! He said they were excellent and it helped my craving! Thanks!

  • instead of salsa stop by taco bell and pick up some packets of mild sauce. if you handle your business they're free which by my calculations costs a lot less then stuff at the store.

  • I would just like to thank you so much Robbie for putting this copy cat recipe of Taco Bells Mexican Pizza on your site, I have always loved those pizzas and have always wanted the recipe for them, now thanks to you I have it, and I tell you this recipe is out of this world. I made them for my family and they all loved them, I bought the Taco Bell's mild sauce in a jar that you can now buy now at stores to put on the pizza's instead of the Picante sauce and it made them taste just like Taco Bells. So keep up the good work in putting in all these good recipes, people like me and others appreciate it so much!

  • I am glad I found this recipe. I substituted vegetarian ground beef crumbles from Morning Star Farms so my husband, the vegetarian, could enjoy it as well. It was fabulous!

  • I made this pizza last night and my boys gave me a thumb up. Even my husband liked the pizza. The only mistake that I made is that I couldn’t get the tortillas crispy enough without burning them. I know I had the heat up too high. But anyway this was a big hit and I will definitely be making them again. Thank you.

  • The only thing I think is missing from your fabulous Taco Bell style Mexican Pizza is mozzarella cheese. I noticed on their site that they list cheddar, monterey jack and mozzarella in the description. Before I found your recipe I tried corn tortillas and they didn't taste right, but I also tried diced mexican style stewed tomatoes (from a can) in place of the salsa and that worked well for me. I always noticed that theirs had a different type of chunky tomato under the cheese than the diced tomato on top. Anyway, thanks for sharing this great recipe. You helped me solve the tortilla puzzle.
