Why is mozzarella used to make pizza? Mozzarella is the most popular cheese in the US because of pizza. Mozzarella is most often used to make pizza because it offers the best melting, bubbling, and browning of all other types of cheese. This is due, in large part, to the high water activity of the cheese. Stretchability is also a desirable trait. Mozzarella is kneaded during manufacturing, which gives this cheese its stretchy consistency.

There are several different types of mozzarella: whole milk and part skim, fresh and aged, and mozzarella di bufala. We carry a wide range of all types of Mozzarella here at Mike Hudson Distributing.
