Low Carb Copycat Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza

Everyone is worried about Taco Bell discontinuing their Mexican Pizza. Do you know who’s not? Us!! We the keto/ low carb people LOL. We’re not worried that they discontinued because we stopped eating that carb overload a long time ago. Does that mean we don’t live our life and stop enjoying our favorite food? Absolutely not!

One of my favorite things to do is recreate restaurant favorites.  I love the challenge of turning traditional favorites into ketofied versions. Also the fact that I can stay home and eat my favorites without leaving the house, the high carbs and the guilt! Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza is basically one of the easiest recipes I’ve recreated. You can use your favorite low carb tortillas or use my recipe for 1g net carbs keto tortillas. https://ketowithmona.com/2020/09/07/grain-free-gluten-free-clean-keto-tortillas1-2g-net-carbs/

This recipe has a couple of steps but doesn’t take long to make. I love using canned black soybeans to replace beans in recipes as a low carb alternative. They are 1 net carbs per 1/2 cup and taste great. I make the refried beans using one can of black soy beans but the pizza doesn’t use the whole recipe, and I honestly love having them in my fridge because I love Mexican food. It’s so convenient having them.

I make the sauce using a can of tomato sauce and a bunch of spices, this way the carb count stats small and the flavors are big and bold. You can use shredded Mexican cheese but I prefer shredding equal parts of my own cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese. Cheddar adds a sharp flavor and Monterey is great for melting.

I have included the Nutrition for the sauce, taco meat, and the refried beans separately in the recipe notes. The full Nutrition is for the pizza using Aldi low carb tortillas, and with my keto tortillas in the recipe notes.
