Doja Cat has is versatile in her music. She is well-known for her absurdly humorous personality and posts on social media platforms. Doja Cat recently announced, while performing at Coachella 2022, that Taco Bell’s fan-favorite Mexican Pizza will be returning this May.
The Grammy winner performed her biggest hits at the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California, on April 17, and in between songs like “Kiss Me More” and “Say So,” she revealed some exciting news. “I brought back the Mexican Pizza by the way,” the 26-year-old told thousands of screaming attendees during her set.
Taco Bell confirmed the news in a press release on April 18th in case fans had any doubts that the tasty news was true. “Our menu is full of fan favorites, but the Mexican Pizza is at the top of that list,” Taco Bell CEO Mark King said. “From its flashy introduction to menus in 1985 as ‘Pizzazz Pizza’ to its inspiration behind the creation of infamous jingles, Mexican Pizza has a long history with the brand and I’m glad we could give fans what they crave and bring our classic Mexican Pizza back home where it belongs.”
Fans will have to wait until May 19th to enjoy the iconic food item, which was removed from menus in 2020. In the meantime, fans must be wondering how Doja got involved in the cheesy conversation. She publicly stated the No. 1 change she hoped to see at Taco Bell after partnering with the fast-food restaurant in 2021.
“Hey @TacoBell just heard my song in your commercial,” she tweeted in November. “I’m a #TacoBellPartner now. So where’s my Mexican Pizza?” Just last month, the rapper rekindled fan interest in the dish by posting a TikTok recording of an original song titled “Refried Beans (Mexican Pizza).”
“This ain’t even Mexican food/But I don’t care when the clock hits 2 a.m., p.m. if that is your mood,” she raps in the video over a beat that incorporates the Taco Bell “bong” sound. “Mexican Pizza is the pizza for you and me.”
If reading this news hasn’t already made you hungry, perhaps a description of this menu item will do the trick. The Mexican Pizza costs $4.49 and consists of two crispy flour shells layered with beans, pizza sauce, seasoned beef, tomatoes, and a melted three-cheese blend. Yes, it’s vegetarian if you don’t want the seasoned beef. “This one is for my fans,” she told E! News. “What better way to share the news than during one of my biggest performances yet. We did it, Mexican Pizza is finally back.”
Fortunately for us, all Doja Cat has to do to get something back on the menu is ask! To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
