Crispy Mexican Tortilla Pizza – this easy tortilla pizza only takes 15 minutes to make! Topped with good-for-you ingredients, Mexican pizza is an easy family favorite!
Mexican + Pizza = Mexican Pizza
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!

Crispy Mexican Tortilla Pizza
- Old El Paso Flour Tortillas 1 restaurant grande tortilla or 2 regular tortillas
- 1/2 cup Old El Paso Vegetarian Refried Beans
- 1/2 cup salsa
- 1 cup shredded Mexican or Cheddar cheese
- 1 avocado pit removed and chopped
- 1 to mato chopped
- 2 green onions sliced
- 1/3 cup sliced black olives
- 3 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place tortillas on a large baking sheet. Poke the tortillas with a fork, this will prevent them from puffing up in the oven. Bake tortillas for 3-4 minutes or until slightly golden brown. Remove from oven.
- Evenly spread tortillas with refried beans. Next, evenly spread on the salsa and top with shredded cheese. Bake for 4-5 minutes or until cheese is melted and edges are golden and crisp.
- Transfer the tortillas to a cutting board and let cool for 1 minute. Top with avocado, tomatoes, green onion, black olives, and cilantro. Cut into slices and serve immediately.

Such a great idea! I feel like my kids would just scarf these down!
Great looking Mexican Pizza!!!
hey Maria This looks amazing! Yummy!
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
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.
I want a slice of this heavenly spiciness!
This looks good except I don’t like refried beans. I wish this was something else I could substitute .
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!
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.
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!
Love how massive those tortillas are for making pizzas!
What i did was tortilla then cheese then tortilla then toppings for a quesadilla “crust”
Want this pizza now!!
Two of our family favorites combined together to make a great family treat our girls will love.
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 !
Glad you liked the recipe!
This was delish! Such a fun twist on our traditional quesadilla that we make all the time, great way to change it up!
Okay. Can you explain to me why you two extra tortillas? Do you place them on top of the large one?
One or the other. If you can’t find the big tortillas, you can make two smaller pizzas:) I hope that helps!
We had a little Mexican feast tonight with your Mexican pizza, guacamole and chicken taquitos. Yum and 5 stars for all!
