Why did Taco Bell discontinue the Mexican pizza?

But low numbers aren't the reason that this lovable item is being discontinued. According to Taco Bell, the item is being removed from its lineup in part because of its environmental impact. The packaging associated with the meal accounts for over seven million pounds of paperboard material per year in the U.S. Even with all of the petitions going around to save one of the best specialty items that Taco Bell has ever created though, the brand isn't planning on changing its mind. Sadly, it's already been removed from the "specialty menu" both in the mobile app and online. And if you're thinking about hitting your nearest Taco Bell to get your *last* Mexican Pizza fix, good luck finding one that still has it on the menu. Man of the locations has already removed it ahead of the official November 5 date.

Taco Bell's popular Mexican Pizza to disappear from the menu Taco bell’s popular Mexican pizza has failed to make a safe place on its menu. After staying on the menu for 32 years, the Taco Bell chain has decided to remove its favorite menu; Mexican pizza. This Pizza will retire on November 5, 2020, as part of Taco Bell's second wave of menu cuts this year. The first wave of cutting the menu removed more than a dozen long-time options, including potatoes. The chain has taken this decision despite the pleas and petitions from Mexican Pizza fans to change course and spare the classic from the chopping block. One Change.org petition, titled "Save the Mexican Pizza," also points out the importance of the menu item among Indian Americans, saying, "This is an item loved by many, especially the South Asian community. Losing this item would not only be the loss of one of our favorite foods but a piece of our childhood & heritage as Indian Americans." As of the writing, it has garnered more than 136,000 signatures, reports by Thrillist.


Taco Bell's Rival Launches a New Version of the Discontinued Mexican Pizza

At long last, the Mexican Pizza is back—but not at Taco Bell. Instead, rival chain Del Taco is launching a new product line aimed at assuaging the disappointment of Taco Bell customers. When the Mexican Pizza, essentially a customizable tostada featuring two tortillas, was removed from Taco Bell's menus last year, an incredibly vocal campaign to bring the product back followed. A petition to bring the item back amassed a whopping 163,000 signatures, becoming one of the most signed petitions on Change.org. Several accounts and hashtags also sprung up on Twitter to promote the same cause—saving the Mexican Pizza from the "cold grips of death."
