Mixing dry/aged and fresh mozzarella?
« on: October 03, 2013, 11:33:25 AM »
Hey guys,

Lately I've been using mostly only dry Boars Head mozzarella on my pies, but I've been meaning to experiment with mixing in some fresh mozzarella.  Perhaps doing a base of dry aged mozzarella, then sauce, then a bit of fresh mozz on top.

Anyone have any experience / advice on this kind of approach?

Ben

I've been mixing Bel-G packaged (is this "fresh" or "dry aged"?) along with fresh water Anglelo & Franco, both sourced at my local Costco in Socal. The A&F is very much like the Garfalo Bufala in flavor and texture before and after cooking. But it also is watery if not dried.  The Bel-G tends to salty and gets rubbery after high temp cooking.  Mixing seems to give a good balance of saltyness and texture.
