Mozzarella cheese

What is mozzarella cheese? About the ingredient mozzarella cheese. Including 966 recipes with mozzarella cheese, nutrition data, photos, and where to find it.


Mozzarella cheese  is a generic term for several kinds of Italian cheeses that are made using spinning and then cutting.

In recipes, if mozzarella is specified the recipe is normally referring to low-moisture mozzarella that is commonly available in most stores.

Low-moisture mozzarella can keep refrigerated for up to a month, though some pre-shredded low-moisture mozzarella is sold with a shelf life of up to 6 months. Mozzarella of several kinds are also used for most types of pizza, lasagna, or served with sliced tomatoes and basil in Insalata caprese.

Fresh Mozzarella

Fresh mozzarella is generally white, but may vary seasonally to slightly yellow depending on the animal's diet. It is a semi-soft cheese.

Due to its high moisture content, it is traditionally served the day it is made, but can be kept in brine for up to a week, or longer when sold in vacuum-sealed packages.


Mozzarella is available fresh; it is usually rolled in the shape of a ball of 80 to 100 grams (6 cm diameter), sometimes up to 1 kilogram (about 12 cm diameter), and soaked in salt water(brine) or whey, sometimes with added citric acid, until sold.

It is also available in smoked (called affumicata) and reduced-moisture packaged varieties.

There are now offered a number of variations, such as "stuffed mozzarella", filled with olives and cooked or raw ham, as well as small tomatoes.
