Mozzarella

Is an Italian fresh milk cheese, traditionally made with Buffalo’s milk. Mozzarella is generally kept in a brine solution in order to preserve it. The cheese has a creamy flavor with a soft texture and the high moisture content. It has exceptional melting properties, making it perfect for pizzas. The mozzarella more commonly found today is typically made from cow’s milk and is technically fior di latte, not mozzarella.
