My boys love pizza and Mexican food so it isn’t a surprise that one of their favorite meals is this Crispy Tortilla Mexican Pizza. They probably eat this Mexican pizza once a week and I am ok with that because it is super easy to make and topped with good-for-you ingredients! And when I say easy, I mean 15 minutes easy…you can’t beat that!

The Tortilla Pizza Crust

The crust of the tortilla pizza is, you guessed it, a flour tortilla! You don’t have to roll out any pizza dough for this Mexican pizza. See, I told you it was easy! We like to use Old El Paso’s Restaurant Grande Flour Tortillas because they are huge and great for making this Mexican pizza. You can make smaller Mexican tortilla pizzas by using regular flour tortillas. Both work great!

How to Make Mexican Pizza

We crisp up the tortillas in the oven and then top them with Old El Paso’s Vegetarian Refried Beans, salsa, and shredded cheese. They go back in the oven for a hot minute, just until the cheese is melted, and then we top them with all of our favorite toppings. We like to add tomatoes, black olives, avocado, cilantro, and green onion. Feel free to add your favorite Mexican toppings!

Cut the tortilla pizza into slices and serve immediately! The pizza is crispy and delicious!

  1. This is absolutely brilliant for nights that I crave something savory for dinner but don’t feel like cooking! I can totally do 15 minutes

  2. The 15-minute crispy mexican tortilla pizzas can save you quiet some time in the morning hurry. Its so colorful. Its definitely going to be in my kid’s favorite list.

  3. This looks good except I don’t like refried beans.  I wish this was something else I could substitute .

    1. Karen, you could use mild enchilada sauce, or pizza sauce, or spaghetti sauce.   If you use  pizza or spaghetti sauce it’s not really Mexican pizza anymore, just regular pizza, but still delicious!

    2. The beauty of this is you can substitute ANYTHING for ANYTHING. I’m 60 now, but the whole time my kids were growing up, this was a staple in our family dinners. They loved making their own – ground beef, onions, peppers, tomatoes, refried beans or not, mushrooms – literally whatever they wanted to put on it. Sometimes they’d use pizza sauce, sometimes salsa. It allowed them to be VERY individualistic.

  4. Oh how I love pictures of such gorgeous avocado, instead of black spotted ones, lol.  I’m definitely making this for dinner…great idea!  Thanks!

  5. Thanks for this recipe !! It was about to be a depressing Saturday night (first week trying to eat healthier) util we found this : ) So full of flavour and super easy. Straight to my bookmarks ! I’ll keep on looking around your site !

  6. 5 stars
    This was delish! Such a fun twist on our traditional  quesadilla that we make all the time, great way to change it up!

    1. One or the other. If you can’t find the big tortillas, you can make two smaller pizzas:) I hope that helps!

  7. 5 stars
    We had a little Mexican feast tonight with your Mexican pizza, guacamole and chicken taquitos. Yum and 5 stars for all!
