Taco Bell broke America’s heart when the fast food chain removed the iconic Mexican pizza from its menus at the end of 2020.
But residents of the coast now have the chance to try a new Mexican pizza at a local favorite.
Pepe’s Bosque, a Mexican restaurant in D’Iberville, now offers a version of Mexican pizza, the company announced Monday on its Facebook page.
The pizza, made with tostada shells and topped with cheese and a few fresh tomatoes, costs $7 and is on the restaurant’s “secret menu” which is not yet in print, owner Lilian Perez-Gollott said on Facebook. .
Pepe’s Bosque captioned the photo with a heart-eyes emoji.
“This version of Mexican pizza is giving us all the heat,” said the post, which has been shared dozens of times.
If you want to feel (and taste) the nostalgia for yourself, diners can order Pepe’s Mexican Pizza during regular business hours, dine-in or take-out, Monday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Most towns on the coast saw a huge increase in restaurant and bar traffic in 2021, including D’Iberville.
