Air Fryer, Mexican Pizza (Taco Bell Copycat Recipe)

Here is how to make the Copycat Taco Bell Mexican Pizza, in your very own home. For any air fryer that is small than the Omni, just subsitute the large tortillas for small ones, this will work for the basket air fryers as well.



  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 8 ounces taco sauce (this is for the taco meat, you will use another 8 ounces during the assembling of the pizza.)
  • 1 package large flour tortillas (substitute for smaller ones, if using a smaller or basket air fryer)
  • 16 ounces refried beans
  • 8 ounces of taco sauce
  • 3 cups Taco Cheese (or Mexican cheese)
  • 2 tomatoes diced
  • 1 green onion sliced
  • 1 cup olives
  • sour cream, guacamole, etc.


  1. Start by browning your meat, you can either do this in the air fryer or in a skillet. Today, I chose the skillet.
  2. Once the meat is fully brown, add the taco sauce, water, and taco seasoning. Mix well, then return to the burner, and simmer for about 4 minutes,  until everything is warm.
  3. Spray your air fryer tray with olive oil. Then place a tortilla down. (If you have a smaller air fryer or a basket air fryer, you can still make this, just use the smaller tortillas)
  4. Spread the refried beans on top of the tortilla.
  5. Then spoon on the taco meat. Spread both the refried beans and taco meat, so they cover the entire tortilla.
  6. Then place another tortilla directly on the refried and taco meat, pressing to seal it.
  7. Spread some taco sauce on, so it covers the top shell and then sprinkle on the shredded cheese.
  8. Place in the air fryer basket or oven, and set the temperature to 300 degrees F, for 5 minutes.
  9. Garnish with chopped tomatoes, scallions, sour cream, olives, etc.
  10. Plate, serve and enjoy!
