    Blends are my favorite way to go. A blend of fontina, asaigo, mozzerella and a mystery cheese is great. In Italian its quatro fomaggio (4 cheese).

    The mystey cheese can be most anything in a small percentage of the others. My favorite mystery cheese is a goat cheese in very small dollips. It gives the pizaza a tangy pizzaz.

    Dudes, there's this cheese found here in Tampa's Cuban grocery stores called Jicotea... Heek-o-tay-a...

    It's sold like, and looks like white American Cheese

    It's GREAT on Pizzas.... Used in a blend even better probably...

    It's like a more flavorful Mozzarella...

    My Argentinean wife's mother makes dynamite pizzas and turned me on to this kickin' queso...

    If you have a Spanish grocery near you ask them if they have it...
    Use it on Parms and stuff like that...

    IMHO: Mozarella cheese is the King of Cheeses for pizza.


    I love the hell out of that and, plain flat out hate Riccotta Cheese. Asiago and Parmesan is good for pastas.
