Where can I get the best classic pizza cheese?
While many varied cheeses are used to top pizzas nowadays, mozzarella is by far the most popular—and for good reason. For several reasons, including its excellent melting properties when fresh, mozzarella is a great addition to even the most basic cheese pizza. You may not have thought much about the “meltiness” of your cheese previously, but the way it bubbles and boils in the oven makes for a fantastic texture and eating experience. To top it all off, mozzarella is the best cheese for a handmade pizza since it melts and stretches beautifully. Try grating some fresh on your own if you like.
What, precisely, goes into making a classic cheese pizza?
Although pizza, as we know it today, was perfected in the city of Naples in the Campania region of Italy, pizza in North America takes on a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and styles, many of which are named by their signature ingredients.
Pizza chains and independent pizzerias alike offer standard pizza toppings, including cheese, pepperoni, sausage, and vegetables. Pizzas with ham and pineapple, buffalo chicken, and barbecue chicken are likely to be on the menu.
In the United States, pizza crusts may be “thin,” “thick,” or in between. Companies and pizzerias alike have pushed stuffed crusts and pizzas made with croissant dough and other unorthodox “crusts.”
Which cheese do you think is used the most often on pizza?
While mozzarella is often used, any cheese you choose may be used to top your pizza. In addition to mozzarella, additional cheeses that work well on homemade pizza include parmesan (often paired with mozzarella), fontina, cheddar, provolone, pecorino romano, and ricotta. Don’t limit yourself to just one, though; pizzas topped with a variety of melty cheeses might be rather tasty.
Can you name the four cheeses often found in pizzas?
There are many other kinds of cheese that may be used to make a four-cheese pizza, but the most common ones are mozzarella, parmesan, gorgonzola, provolone, ricotta, parmesan, and sometimes even cheddar.
Serves 6-8 (s)
IT’S GO TIME:
Time: 0 hrs., 35 min.
- 1 c – pizza dipping sauce
- 8 oz – razor-thin slices of provolone cheese
- 2 c – low-moisture mozzarella cheese that’s been shredded and made from whole milk
- 6 tbsp – Grated Parmesan Cheese & Ree’s Original Pizza Crust
First, after creating the dough, cut it in half and set each half aside to rest at room temperature for about an hour, covered. In the meanwhile, heat the oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit with a baking stone or a sheet pan upside down.
Second, on a lightly floured surface, stretch or roll out one piece of dough into a 12-inch round disc, about 1/8 inch thick. The dough should be placed on a pizza peel or other inverted baking sheet that has been dusted with cornmeal.
Third, Cover the dough with half of the sauce, leaving a 1/2-inch border all the way around. Cover with the remaining provolone, then mozzarella, and finally parmesan.
Put the pizza on the hot stone or baking sheet for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the crust is browned and the cheese is melted. Use the remaining dough and toppings to make another pizza. Two pizzas of that size may be made using this recipe.
