Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza is no more and people don’t seem to be happy about the news.
Earlier this month, Taco Bell discontinued several popular items including the Nachos Supreme, Spicy Potato Soft Taco, Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes, Spicy Tostada and the 7-Layer Burrito.
On Thursday, the fast-food chain announced starting on November 5th they were also going to remove the beloved Mexican Pizza, all items with shredded chicken, including the Shredded Chicken Soft Taco, Shredded Chicken Burrito, and Shredded Chicken Quesadilla Melt in an effort to streamline their menu.

“We’re constantly evaluating ways to provide a more efficient restaurant experience, and have already begun to see progress from streamlining our menu,” Mike Grams, Taco Bell’s president and global COO, said in a press release. “While we know fans may be understandably sad to see some of their favorites go, this evolution of our menu truly paves the way for fresh new ideas. The creativity and innovation in our kitchen hasn’t slowed down at all, and we look forward to rolling out new fan favorites.”
Fans of the Mexican pizza took to Twitter to voice their displeasure about their favorite fast food item being removed from the menu.
