This cheese, which belongs to the pasta filata family, is known for its superb melting, stretching, browning properties and elastic consistency. Mozzarella has become a favorite in snack foods, antipasto dishes, salads, pizza’s, calzone's, foccacia's and various side dishes.
Mozzarella has a mild, slightly sweet taste and generally is moist due to the brine solution. The loaf, aged and commercial variety, however, are drier and have a milder flavour. Because of its excellent melting properties, the cheese blends well with baked dishes, sandwiches and pastas.
