Demand for the Mexican Pizza was seven times higher than when it last appeared on menus two years ago. Many locations have sold out.
“Because of the incredible love for the Mexican Pizza, we have begun selling out across the country,” Taco Bell said on its corporate website. “Our restaurant teams trained weeks for what we knew would be a big return, we just didn’t realize how big, and replenishing the beloved menu item is taking longer than we’d like.”
The statement went on to say that Taco Bell is working “diligently with our restaurants and suppliers” to get more ingredients for the pizza, and hopes it returns permanently to menus “by this fall.”
