Yahoo Finance Live's Dave Briggs and Seana Smith check out Taco Bell's decision to pull its "Mexican Pizza" from menus after a shortage of ingredients during high demand.

Video Transcript

- Taco Bell forced to pull the Mexican pizza from its menus, again. At least this time it appears to be temporary, though. Taco Bell's parent company, Yum Brands, says the move is because the item is just so popular.

The company said one California location sold 1,000 Mexican pizzas on the first day. There was a single order that included 180 Mexican pizzas. Taco Bell says the are aiming to get the Mexican pizza back on the menu in the fall permanently.

And if you were like me, and you were waiting for that Mexican pizza TikTok musical from Doja Cat and Dolly Parton, you, Shawna, were disappointed because they postponed that as well. It never happened. Demand seven times what it was the last time it was on the menu.

- And I get it. I get the craze because we tasted it right here on this show, and it was pretty darn good. So it doesn't shock me that demand is through the roof. The TikTok musical-- that's my big question here going forward-- if they bring it back in the fall, if it's a permanent item then on the menu, you would have to think that maybe the TikTok musical is going to make its debut in the fall. I don't know if it's just too much of optimistic thinking at this point, but I was really looking forward to seeing Dolly Parton--

- Fool me once--

- --and Doja Cat together.

- --shame on me. Fool me twice-- I mean, look, that, we fell for that. I'm not sure if that was meant to be.

- I think a lot of people fell for that.

- I'm not sure if that was going to happen. I was literally logged on to TikTok May 26 at 8:00 Eastern time waiting for it. It is interesting to see what will become of that.

But why can't they keep it on the menu? Is it that tostada shell? They haven't said what ingredient they can't keep in stock. I'm just assuming it's the shell because they have two of them on every pizza.

- You know, I think you're making a safe bet because I was talking about this, before. And when you take a look at that, I mean, it looks like a lot of the ingredients that they use on their tacos, or in other parts of their menu. So I think you're a safe bet with the shell. It's the only thing that I can really think of that maybe they're having trouble getting, but we'll see.
