Hey good folks. I'm doing a little research on pizza and would like to ask for some suggestions on pizza cheese. Basically, do any of you know where to purchase the type of cheese or processed cheese product used in commercial pizza operations (ie. Pizza Pizza, Domino's, Pizza Hut, etc.) ? Also, can you suggest any cheese blends that you prefer? Lastly, any suggestions on a good location or store that sells cheese at a good value would be great. Thanks!
I think it depends on what type of pizza you like to make/eat. Personally, I like a good quality mozzarella on a thin. crisp crust. I'm not big on overloading a pizza with too many ingredients. Therefore, I like a thin base with a splash of fairly thick sauce, some cheese, some toppings and then some nore cheese. I like bocconcinni cheese on a pizza along with the good quality mozzarella too. And...hit it with some crumbled goat's cheese as well.
You can use other cheeses as well for interesting pizzas. Don't forget about brie, old cheddar, blue, oka, havarti....whatever you fancy.
With pizza, you can't make too many mistakes after you have your crust down pat.
I like mozzarella with a little smoked cheese thrown in, maybe some fruilano too. Grande Cheese has great prices on cheese, but you generally need to buy in fairly large quantity.
