This Instant Pot Mexican pizza is an easy Instant Pot recipe we love. Special thanks goes out to Foster Farms for sponsoring this post so we could share this quick meal idea with you. 😉 (originally published 8/17, affiliate links present)

I think we all love layers of meat and cheesy goodness for dinner. This is the ultimate in comfort food cooked in just 4 minutes! That is right!

If you don’t have a pressure cooker I’d highly recommend one. You can cook a traditional meal that normally takes several hours in your crockpot in just 15 minutes flat typically.

Let’s start with a few basic tips:

For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have and use for all recipe creations.

  • Here’s how easy this cheesy Instant Pot Mexican pizza is to make. No wonder it’s on our list of Instant Pot kids recipes!

First you will need a Ninja Foodi, Crockpot Express or Instant Pot to pressure cook. We have a 6 qt. Instant Pot.

A 6″ or 7″ springform pan is necessary too. 6 inch worked great using small corn tortillas.

If your days are non stop dropping off kids, grocery shopping, cleaning, and working, you don’t have a lot of dinner prep time. 

My days usually look something like this and I only have under an hour to prep, cook, and serve dinner for five of us.

I’m all about a nutritious meal packed with protein and flavor, this one tops the list at our house!

It’s all about layering when it comes to a great Instant Pot Mexican pizza, this one is no different.

The two different cheeses give it great flavor. Olives are great on everything and you can choose the heat level for your enchilada sauce.

  • This recipe below is enough to make two Instant Pot Mexican pizzas. If you only want 1 just cut it in half.

Of course how much cheese, meat, and sauce you want to layer on is totally up.
