Pizza is one of the most popular foods in the U.S., with more than 90% of Americans ordering a pizza at least once per month! It is a meal that can bring family and friends together to share laughs and great food! Plus, with so many toppings, there is something to suit everyone.
Cheese is arguably the most important topping on any pizza. Depending on the cheese you use, you can create a different flavor and texture for your pizza.
This article will help you discover Pizza Volta cheese. We cover the different cheeses we use, exploring what makes each of them unique and perfect for pizza. Let’s get cheesy!
Mozzarella and Burrata
Mozzarella is the king of pizza cheese and gets used as a base for most pizzas. It has a mild, creamy flavor and a soft, stretchy texture. It’s made with either cow or buffalo milk, which adds an earthy quality to the flavor profile.
It is the ideal cheese for pizza because it melds well with many different types of toppings. The subtle tang to it makes it delicious without being overpowering.
Burrata is a delightful mixture of different textures and flavors. It has a soft shell, which when broken open, has an almost buttery consistency in the center.
It has a similar flavor profile to mozzarella, but burrata is more light and springy in texture.
Parmesan is a hard cheese from Italy, usually shaved on top of pizza and pasta dishes. It has a delicate, yet very intense flavor and a dense texture.
The strong taste of parmesan means it is usually best on its own rather than combined with other cheeses. The secret to the bold flavor profile of parmesan is that it has matured for at least 12 months, if not a few years!
The only exception is with mozzarella, as it tends to enhance rather than reduce the mild flavor. This makes it ideal to enhance even a traditional recipe like a classic cheese pizza.
Goat cheese is the ultimate addition to any pizza. It does not melt in the same way as other traditional pizza cheese, due to its thicker consistency. But it does become soft and melt-in-your-mouth gooey for a delicious topping.
With its unique, tart flavor it is ideal in combination with sweeter flavors. On our popular Squasha Fierce pizza, we pair it with caramelized onions for a taste sensation.
Ricotta cheese is a gorgeous fresh cheese, with a thick and creamy texture. It has a mild flavor profile, with a hint of nuttiness.
Because it does not have an overpowering taste, it can work well both on sweet and savory pizzas. Whether combined with bacon and honey on our chew-BACA pizza or in a calzone, it tastes amazing.
We are now proud to say that we also offer a great dairy-free option in our restaurants. Vegan mozzarella is a great alternative to the regular variety.
It has all the flavor and texture of regular mozzarella without the moo! It is delicious with caramelized onion and dried tomato on our Tomato Tomato pizza.
