I kinda thought the pre-shredded cheese pizza looked the most appetizing

cheese curds are not required for poutine. I don't know why people think this. It's just not true, "authentic" doesn't equal good. people who don't like mozzarella on poutine are confirmed hosers.

Meanwhile in Australia we use a blend of Motz, Cheddar and Parmesan that tastes so much better than just motz.

we make a lot of New York and pan pizza and almost always use Galbani WMLM Mozzarella that is available in ball form designed for shredding at our grocery store. I think this has the flavor that is closest to US pizzeria style and I was trained by a guy who paid for his college by working in a pizza shop. The pre shredded stuff is all crap

Deli-sliced provolone as thin as they can slice it works great for browning and can at least stretch a little. It's only when you have thick slices or shredded provolone that oil becomes a problem. I'm talking about getting it cut so thin you ask them to leave the paper separators out because they weigh almost as much as the cheese when they weigh it for price. I like to make sure to line the edges of the crust of whatever pizza I make, as it browns well enough to get an amazing crunch with really good flavor.

If you don’t have access to low moisture I’d recommend melting normal mozzarella in a small pan and adding a tiny bit of vinegar, one it’s melted down turn off the heat and work it back into itself until you have a much drier but similar looking ball of mozz. You still can’t grate it in my experience but it’s a pretty good sub if you chop it up

I've actually found such "medium moisture" cheese now and I gotta say, I love it. Yeah, it rises in the oven and it spills over, but I love that spilled-over cheese, which gets nice and brown and crispy and wraps around the edge. And I've never had a problem with my pizza coming out too wet, but that might be because I'm using it for pan pizza and not New York-style.

The question for many with low-moisture mozz unavailable to them: Low-moisture non-mozzarella cheese vs. fresh mozzarella? We use block cheddar as the base cheese of our homemade pizza, and slices of fresh buffalo mozzarella as a common topping. Yeah, the cheddar doesn't brown as well, but it has nice flavor.

Adam, please tell me you've come to Naples at least once! If not, I'll let you eat a real neapolitan pizza and a REAL fresh mozzarella (and yes, the best mozzarella, here, is buffalo mozzarella). Really thought, think about it, after the Coronavirus thing ahhaha Saluti da Napoli! 🇮🇹

With how the anti-caking mix ends up drying up the pizza, could it possibly be used to mitigate the effects of the cheese with too high a moisture?
John-Del Hace 13 días
Funny you should ask. I always buy a bricks of low moisture full fat mozzerella but don't shred it: I cut it thinly and cover the pizza like my mom and grandmother always did. Last time I made pizza, I used a bag of pre shredded mozz to cover the gaps between the sliced cheese. Through this video, I found out why my last batch burned on top. I thought I had the rack incorrect. Anyway, one of the pizzas I made (I always make 6 at a shot) had fresh mozzerella we didn't finish for a salad, and we still got the burning on that pizza as well because I supplemented the fresh high moisture mozz with the bagged shredded. Lesson: don't use pre shredded!!

Whole Foods 365 brand makes great a great pre-shredded part-skim mozzarella, if you're into that. I found that the more expensive, courses shredded cheeses tend to have less of the anti-caking agent. Works verysimilarly to cheese I have shredded myself. I love great pizza, but most days the convenience wins.

I've made plenty of good pizza with full moisture mozzarella the tricks are to freeze it before shredding and you need to partially pre-cook the dough a little before adding the sauce and cheese. also if your using the pre-shreded stuff you'll likely need a longer cook time at a lower temperature. then again I think a mozzerella provolone combo is easier to use if you want fast results.
