Tip- Fresh mozzarella or buffalo mozzarella. This Italian cheese is often found stored in whey or vacuum sealed packages. It has a completely different taste and texture from the mozzarella used on your pizza. It is a somewhat soft cheese with a very clean and yet slightly salty flavor. There is no substitute for this cheese. Almost every grocery store stocks it these days. If you have a local or specialty store that sells it, go for it! It is best eaten the same day that it is made. If you haven't tried this amazing cheese, you are in a for treat, this is not the mozzarella cheese you ate as a kid.
