Online Cheese Suppliers??
« on: July 14, 2021, 01:33:33 PM »
Just wondering if anyone has any resources to buy good pizza cheese online?

I'm an "amateur" pizzamaker who is still figuring out where I want to go with this endeavor. Unfortunately for me, short of having a relationship with a foodservice distributor there are not many options for getting your hands on anything even close to decent.  :-\

I guess it depends on what you want. I get my Grande Mozz/Prov 50/50 from PennMac.
Keep in mind, your definition of "close to decent" may not be the same as someone else's...

How many pies/day are you looking to make?

Hans, how are their shipping costs?
Their prices for the cheese I buy from PennMac are a little cheaper, not much, but a little.
PennMac's shipping is expensive, but they do ship in Styrofoam container with ice packs.

I'm not sure. I only get the Grande ECB from them but don't recall shipping cost. If you put something in the cart it should tell you.

I tried to place an order but couldn't.
On the checkout page it said "There are no shipping options available. Please ensure that your address has been entered correctly, or contact us if you need any help. "
Address was fine, and when I clicked on "Place Order" it told me I needed to select a Shipping Option.   ???
I just closed the page.  Guess I will stick with PennMac.

You should find a local cash and carry distributor.
I buy my Grande WM for between $90 - $100 for 6 5lb bags of shredded.
Yeaaaaa nuts to buy it online for double the price and shipping.....JT

I put my mom onto verns a while ago, she LOVES the grande mozz, and I dont get down enough to see her to keep her supplied with the stuff that I get at my local shamrock foodservice.  interesting note is that they wont ship out of 'season' ho hot climates. so for us in AZ, no shipment during the summer for 'quality' reasons.  I imagine depending on the part of NM you are in, the same rules would apply.  best to stock up when they start shipping again as the weather cools down.  They even email my mom now to let her know when the last order of the season can be shipped based on out climate.


Nothing but good things to say about them, that they care this much about quality.

Now as of an hour from now, I buy cheese at Shamrock Phoenix. Thanks, shawkyns.

02ebz06, there's one of these in ABQ.

I bought mozzarella from here just to try.  It's very good, but too expensive to do it regularly.
