Shredded Mozzarella

Shredded Mozzarella March 17th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.

It's the classic pizza cheese.  Melty and stretchy and mild, the ideal companion to toppings from pepperoni to asparagus.  Mozzarella is a pasta filata cheese, meaning the cheese curds are heated, stretched, and kneaded before they're molded into their final cheese form.  Pasta filata cheeses melt marvelously and stretch when they're heated - imagine a piping hot pizza and you get the idea. Trader Joe's Shredded Mozzarella is a super handy cheese, meaning that it's super handy to have in your fridge, and it's super handy to use in all kinds of recipes - especially pizza.

Our Shredded Mozzarella is made with part-skim milk from cows not treated with rBST. It has a delicate, milky flavor and smooth texture that, true to its pasta filata nature, melts evenly. So go ahead; make a pizza or even a big pan of lasagna. Or fire up the panini press and make a grilled cheese sandwich. Toss some Shredded Mozzarella into a salad or atop a bowl of hot soup.  Did we mention pizza? We're selling each 16 ounce, resealable bag for $3.99, every day. If you're a mozzarella fan and you've shopped elsewhere, you know what a great price this is for such great tasting cheese. You'll find it in our cheese case, inside your super handy neighborhood Trader Joe's.
