12 Mozzarellas Recommended by Saveur
Creamy, pillowy, elastic, and melty...all qualities of a great mozzarella. If you're stumped at the grocery store, searching for something to top your pizza or stuff in your calzone, this mozzarella roundup from Saveur may come in handy. What's your favorite mozzarella?
We worked our way through pounds and pounds of mozzarella for this issue, including authentic mozzarella di bufala from Italy; the milky, creamy fior di latte praised by pizzaioli in Naples; and cows' milk mozzarellas made in the U.S. Some were sturdy and smoky; others ethereal globes in saltwater brine. All brought wonderful textures and flavors to our pizzas. Here are 12 of our favorites.
