It is my understanding that the OED has only revised part of the letter M.
In addition, "Mexican Pizza," like many of the items Barry posts
information about, does not seem like a term of sufficient currency or
sufficient status as a fixed combination to merit inclusion in the OED.
The OED does not cover every possible word-combination in the English
language, although it has more than any other dictionary.
