Taco Bell is Removing the Mexican Pizza


November 5th Taco Bell is removing the beloved Mexican Pizza, pico de gallo and shredded chicken from the menu.

Discarding the Mexican Pizza is part of the company's eco-friendly commitment: Packaging for the item amounts to more than 7 million pounds of paperboard per year.

Pico de gallo will be replaced with diced tomatoes. Taking away shredded chicken means three chicken items — shredded chicken soft taco, shredded chicken burrito, and shredded chicken quesadilla melt — will be gone from the menu.

Taco Bell has already removed about a dozen items including the 7-Layer Burrito, Nachos Supreme and the Beefy Fritos Burrito. The company explained that it was necessary during the pandemic.

A lot of people took to social media to express their disappointment about the latest cuts.
