Mexican Pizza: The Musical will premiere on the social media platform on May 26 to commemorate the return of the once-discontinued and much-loved dish to the fast-food chain’s menu.

Doja Cat has been a vocal advocate of the Mexican Pizza, even writing a “contractual” rap for Taco Bell after the item was removed from the menu in 2020. “If you ever dare to go discontinued,” she raps in the jingle, adding, “This ain’t even Mexican food.”

When TikTok comic Victor Kunda took the jingle and made a spoof version of a musical about Mexican Pizza starring Doja Cat, the roots of Mexican Pizza: The Musical were planted. According to EW, Kunda will now feature in the new musical, which was inspired in part by her video.

Screenwriter Hannah Friedman and TikTok pair Abigail Barlow and Emily Bear, known for their TikTok musical ‘The Unofficial Bridgerton Musical,’ were also involved in the musical’s development.

“We sat down and composed a musical for Mexican Pizza,” Barlow confirmed in a TikTok video, adding, “Every song is a banger, if I do say so myself.”

Parton later confirmed her involvement in the project, in an unspecified capacity, in an Instagram post that included a photo of the script, which described the musical as “based on the true story of the internet losing its mind.”

Over 200,000 people signed a petition to have the Mexican Pizza back on Taco Bell’s menu. The petition organizer characterized Mexican pizza as a “bridge to American culture for kids who grew up in immigrant households.”
