What are the advantages/disadvantages to using fresh mozzarella vs shredded WMLM mozzarella?

I wouldn't say there are necessarily advantages or disadvantages - rather differences. Notwithstanding, there isn't much Neapolitan about using WMLM.  Basically it's personal preference: different appearance, texture, flavor, contribution to the overall wettness of the pie, etc. There are a couple pies where I like the WMLM from time to time, but in general I prefer fresh. For WMLM, I never use shredded - only thin slices.

One advantage of LM mozz vs fresh in general is that the quality of LM will be much more consistent.

Within the limited about of literature that I've read, I don't recall them specifying fresh or LM mozzarella -- however most of the pictures I've seen almost all show fresh mozz. 


For WMLM, I never use shredded - only thin slices.
Thanks, I didn't consider that.  Any suggestions for toppings using sliced LM?
