When you make homemade pizza, top quality toppings are important. Mozzarella cheese is one of the best ingredients to put on any pizza.
Most of my pizzas have been made with commercial grade mozzarella. I have gotten good results over the years and have no real complaints. This type of mozzarella is made from cow's milk and comes in blocks or is already shredded.
I used to buy the individual pre-shredded packets in the 8 ounce size. This is probably the worst way to buy mozzarella. I found a great way to save money by buying in bulk at a local food warehouse. I buy a 5 pound bag of mozzarella and divide it up into individual packets that I freeze until I need them. Surprisingly, mozzarella freezes well with no ill effects.
Buffalo Mozzarella (Mozzarella di Buffala) is made from buffalo milk and is very different from commercial mozzarella. Buffalo Mozzarella is shaped into a ball and is packed in a brine mixture rather than wrapped in plastic. Fresh cows milk mozzarella is similar to Buffalo Mozzarella and is also packed in brine. The taste of this fresh mozzarella is totally unique. It has a firm elastic texture that springs back to the touch. When using it to cook pizza, Mozzarella di Buffala tends to puddle and ooze over the entire pizza. This is heavenly!
The taste is incredibly fresh and creamy. There really is no comparison between Buffalo Mozzarella and its commercial grade cousin. If you can get Buffalo Mozzarella, or fresh cows milk mozzarella, try it on your next pizza. You will be pleasantly surprised!Mozzarella Di Buffala - The King of Mozzarella!
