Pizza cheese

I know mozzarella cheese is the standard for pizza, but wonder if any one uses or can recommend another tasty cheese for my pizza.

A lot of folks I know put a generous helping of Parmesan along with the Moz. Even Romano or Asiago cheeses. They both have a stronger flavor to them. And you will be sticking to the Italian start of the pizza. Just grab a handful or two and be generous with it. If you buy a hunk of these cheeses, you can shave off pieces of them and place on the pizza on top of the Moz.

I like using Muenster cheese on a pizza, holds things together and melts quickly.

Kayelle, that works only if you like Asiago. To my taste buds, it tastes like locker-room socks smell.

- I've had pizza with a mozz/cheddar mix that was tasty.
- I've put Fontina cheese on my pizza when I make them using Naan bread or Boboli crusts. Fontina is especially good on a white sauce pizza with spinach/black olives/mushrooms.
- Feta is good on that kind of pizza combo, too.
- Then there is St. Louis style with "Provel" cheese, a processed cheese made from provolone, Swiss, and white cheddar. Haven't had it for decades, but it's really good.

Years ago there was a pizzeria in Missoula Montana that used mild cheddar on their pizzas, at least I think that's what it was. It was yellow/orange anyway, and was not as rubbery as mozzarella.
