When it comes to pizza, everyone has their favorite piece of the pie. Some people love the crust, some the tomato sauce, and many people cite cheese as their favorite part of the pie. At Pepe’s, we don’t see any sense in arguing what the best part of our pies are. Instead we’ll focus on our favorite types of cheese for pizza toppings!
Mozzarella is quite possibly the most commonly used cheese used for pizza toppings across the world. If you are a fan of “stretchy” cheese on your pizza, then mozzarella is a great choice. This cheese is chewy, stretchy, and overall a fan favorite for pizza lovers.
For more adventurous pizza eaters gorgonzola cheese is a fantastic choice. The texture is soft and crumbly, and it creates a salty taste with a little bit of “bite” to it. Often called an Italian blue cheese, gorgonzola creates a tangy and unique pizza eating experience.
Goat cheese is one of the worlds longest produced cheeses. Produced from goat’s milk as opposed to cows, the cheese is tangy and sweet. If you are a fan of cheese such as feta, then goat cheese will sit well with your palate. Goat cheese is also a lighter and healthier cheese option for pizza.
Asiago cheese has a flavor like Parmesan but is both nuttier and creamier. This cheese goes well grated over a pizza and can have a crumbly texture. For pizza lovers who enjoy an earthy and full flavor, asiago is a great choice. Feel free to combine asiago cheese with other toppings to create your own unique Pepe’s pie!
