Fresh Mozzarella Pizza

I had always wanted to try fresh mozzarella, and one time, many years ago, I did.  It was okay, but not worth, in my mind, the extreme cost and short lifespan.

Fast forward to a few months ago.  It was on sale at $4. a pound – cheap for any cheese – so I gathered up two half-pound balls and placed them gently in my cart, thence home to the refrigerator.

The above picture shows what I did with one of those balls.  It is far different from the regular, more stringy aged mozzarella.  Not superior, necessarily, but different.  We liked them both.  It was a VERY enjoyable pizza.

The next trip to the grocery store provided an additional four balls, which have been used in various ways – grilled on medallions of sourdough toast mostly, with a variety of other toppings.  Sort of tiny pseudopizzas with different themes.

I have one ball left . . .  😦   They are back to $8. a pound now, but I will be watching for another sale.

    That pizza does look really good. Are those olives on top?

  2. Aged Mozzarella has never been my favorite cheese but I love fresh Mozzarella. I have probably discarded more than I have eaten, though, because of the short refrigerator life.

      Definitely need to keep “use up the mozzarella” at the forefront of my food brain. I’m about to pair it with some salami on a few medallions of the sourdough toast for our afternoon snack!

  3. I always prefer fresh Mozzarella on my pizza and this one looks so good.
    Too many times what is sold under fresh mozzarella is not really that fresh. Glad you’ve found a good one. 🙂

    Looks very tasty. You should try making the cheese sometime. We got a kit that has everything you need but the milk and have made several really yummy balls. My fave is onion mozzarella.
