15-Minute Mexican Pizza

A Mexican pizza is easy to make and this homemade version is even better than Taco Bell with warm tortillas stuffed with refried beans, meat and melty cheese.

We love how customizable these are for taco Tuesday! Other favorites include navajo tacos, taco bowls or make a nacho bar.

Easy Homemade Mexican Pizza

Mexican pizzas are one of those easy recipes that allows everyone in the family to customize their own dinner. We set up an assembly line of toppings, each person can pick their favorites to add on and dinner is done in 15 minutes!

These Mexican pizzas are easy to make and completely delicious! The best thing about these and my easy recipe for tostadas is that everyone in your family can add their own toppings to customize theirs from salsa to cilantro, avocado and more!

How to Make a Mexican Pizza

For lunch or dinner, you can’t beat a quick and easy Mexican pizza recipe!

Adding toppings to Mexican pizza.
  1. Warm tortillas. Place tortillas on a lined baking sheet or pizza pan and warm in oven at 400ºF for about 3 minutes.
  2. Make bean mixture. While the tortillas warm, heat the beans in pan over medium-low heat for 2-3 minutes. Then mix in 3 Tablespoons salsa, taco seasoning and salt.
  3. Assemble. Take the tortillas out of the oven and place 5 of them in a line. Spread the bean mixture on top of the 5 tortillas, then add cheese, meat and another tortilla on top. Spread salsa over the top tortilla and then sprinkle on some more cheese.
  4. Bake. Bake the pizzas until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Top and enjoy. Remove from oven and add your favorite toppings. Slice into 4 pieces. Enjoy!


The beauty of this recipe is that you can easily make it your own! I used flour tortillas, black bean refried beans, mild salsa, cheese and chicken for the base.

Feel free to customize these base ingredients, such as using hot salsa, regular refried beans or taco meat or shredded chicken.

A Mexican pizza is easy to make and this homemade version is even better than Taco Bell with warm tortillas stuffed with refried beans, meat and melty cheese.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 7


  • 10 flour tortillas (6-inch)
  • 16 ounce can black bean refried beans
  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 cup salsa (more if needed)
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1 ½ cups cooked meat (I used shredded rotisserie chicken)

Optional toppings: tomatoes, sliced olives, diced avocado, sour cream or plain greek yogurt, chopped cilantro, salsa, jalapenos & corn


    • Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with foil or use a pizza pan. Place the tortillas on the pan and warm them in the oven for 3 minutes.
    • While the tortillas are cooking, heat the beans in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in 3 Tablespoons of salsa, taco seasoning and salt. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
    • Remove tortillas from the oven and spread the beans onto the top side of 5 tortillas. Sprinkle with cheese, add meat if desired and then top with another tortilla. Spread salsa on top of the tortilla and then add cheese. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
    • Top with desired toppings then cut into 4 slices.


    You can make these without meat, or use taco meat to mix it up. I like to use easy shredded chicken as well.
