Taco Bell announces return of fan-favourite item

Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza was torn away from us in 2020 but, in latest news, the fast-food chain has announced its return.

How many calories does Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza have?

According to Mason Fit, Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza had 530 calories before it was axed from the menu in 2020.

Food and Wine reports that Taco Bell has since added changes to the way the pizza is made, including altering their ingredient sourcing. Due to these changes, some foodies wondered if the number of calories in a Mexican Pizza would change.

However, as per Fast Food Nutrition, Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza remains at around 530 calories in 2022. The veggie Mexican Pizza, however, will be around 460 calories.

Fast-food fans react to return of Mexican Pizza

It’s been near two years since Taco Bell fans were last able to get their hands on a Mexican Pizza, so news of its return has certainly caused a stir.

“Good morning! The Kings are out of the playoffs and Taco Bell’s Mexican pizza is back in a few days. It’s a good time to be alive!” one person tweeted.

“Sometimes good things do happen. Taco Bell is bringing back the Mexican Pizza,” another wrote.
