Pizza Cheese
Pizza cheese is a pasteurized process cheese food designed to melt well on pizza while remaining chewy. It is sometimes used on commercially produced pizzas in North America, where some people may mistake it for the more traditional Mozzarella. Pizza cheese is formulated so that it can be made with basic cheese making equipment but without the additional equipment and processing that true Mozzarella requires. It has a soft texture, and is designed to melt well. Once melted, it typically has a slightly ‘stringy’ quality when pulled or bitten into.
