Tried this cheese today. i liked it very much. I have had their regular Fresh mozzarella before, but did not know they made a cheese specially for pizza.

Can't say that I've seen that anywhere.  I'd love to try it.  I've used their regular fresh mozz quite a bit.  I think the Sorrento/Galbani fresh mozz has more flavor, and I've gotten it cheaper, but the BelGioso melts a lot better. 
When I'm making a fresh mozz pie, the tomato sauce is really the star.  The Galbani is a nice flavor complement, but the gummy quality after it melts is a distraction.  I go with the BelGioso when I can get it at a good price.  Usually Walmart has the best price.

I think Pastaking is right:

http://media.eatwisconsincheese.com/resources/allwhatsnew/10-05-31/Belgioioso_s_Fresh_Mozzarella_For_Pizza_A_Formula_For_Success.aspx
"Known for award-winning authentic classic Italian cheeses, BelGioioso is pleased to launch a new low-moisture Fresh Mozzarella, comparable to Pizzaiuoli Cheese in Italy. Chefs and cheese lovers alike will appreciate the cheese’s premium melting qualities for all styles of pizza, especially delightfully simple Margheritas. BelGioioso® Fresh Mozzarella has a clean, milky flavor with a low moisture content, ideal for commercial and deli quality melting on pizzas made in conventional, wood or coal-burning ovens."

I'd be curious to know if it has more flavor than the original or if it's only lower moisture of the same cheese.

JD,

It has more of an Italian Style Mozzarella cheese taste. The texture was very nice but not as soft as their original whole milk mozzarella cheese, as expect for an Italian style mozzarella

Bel Gioioso Fresh Mozzarella was already too dry for NP, IMO.
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

I think they have a larger (5lb or 10lb) package that may not be pre-sliced.

I get these smaller ones from Costco.  They are sliced at about 3/8" or maybe 1/2"...

We have it here in Yardley PA.  I've used it on pizza and it is good but I usually use the sargento whole milk blocks; they seem to have more flavor to me.  As for the Belgioso sliced, I use it when we have gatherings and I put it out layered with fresh tomatoes, fresh basil and drizzled with garlic oil and sometimes balsamic.
