Taco Bell is removing Mexican Pizza, other items from menu

🌮🍕 Taco Bell is thinning its menu starting Nov. 5 to make way for several new items.

It’s sad news for Mexican Pizza fans this fall, as the packaging-heavy meal didn’t fit Taco Bell’s vision for the future.

“We know some fans may be sad to see this one go, we are too. One silver lining of saying goodbye to the Mexican Pizza that might help you rest easy is that removing it from our menus helps us work towards our commitment to leave a lighter footprint on our planet,” Taco Bell said in a news release.
