BelGioioso WMLM Mozzarella For NY Pizza?
« on: December 01, 2020, 09:11:16 PM »
Yesterday at Restaurant Depot I specifically went to get some Saputo Gold WMLM because of the high praise this cheese gets at the PMF.  While there I saw BelGioioso WMLM Mozzarella.  I still got the Saputo Gold but the BelGioioso caught my attention because all I ever seen and hear about is their fresh moz.  I did a search here at the PMF and all I see are post about the fresh moz by them.  I don't think I have seen one mention of their WMLM Moz.  Wondering if any of you have tried the WMLM version of BelGioioso?  If so how is it?  Does it compare favorably to Grande?

Thanks

The Saputo Gold that I bought has a different label than what is normally pictured on the Internet.  This first pic is the label you see a lot on the Internet.  The second is what I bought.  Should be the same but don't know why the labels are different.  The second one I took off the Internet because the one that I bought is in the refridge outside in the garage and I didn't take a picture and I am too lazy to go out there.

We made that for pizzeria's. Lots of customers asking for it, & we listened.
It melts great & performs well according to our customers. Feel free to message us more if you have more questions.
We also have a secret blend that is even harder to find  :-X

 BelGioioso thanks for the reply and info.  I am glad you sell it at RD.  Because I like your fresh moz and you have a great reputation I will buy it next time.  I am really intrigued by your LMWM.

I will post a pic but I actually didn't buy the BelGioioso, I just had a question about it.  I bought Saputo Gold.  Next time I will buy the BelGioioso.  I may post a pic under NY Style for my SG pizza.  Keep looking today for the pics.

I'd try it if I could find it, the only store around me that carried BelGioioso Mozz recently started carrying only Murray's.  I really liked their fresh Mozz, I guess I'll have to check other stores to see if somebody else carries it.  PizzaEater101, do you remember how much it was?  I've never been to RD but since they're open to the public for the time being I might need to go check it out.

Yes, it is $3.94 per pound for Belgioioso LMWM.  Now I may be wrong about how many pounds that block is but it looked big.  All these Mozzes were 5 LBS but for some reason that Belgioioso may have been 6 LBS.  I may be wrong.   Once I am done with the Saputo Gold I am going to try the Belgioioso.  SG is good but the Belgioioso may be better but time will tell.

Not all RD carry the same stock.  The RD locations near me didn't carry SG so I had to go to Van Nuys which is about 35 minutes away.  Also I never saw Belgioioso before either.  So maybe your local RD may or may not have Belgioioso.  If you get some please post a report on it and post pics.

Iíd love to try it. The restaurant depotís in Phoenix have all stopped carrying Saputo and PollyO. All I have available to me is their house cheese which is ok and something called California which is far from ok. They do carry a lot of BelGioiosoís fresh mozzarella  products so Iím keeping my fingers crossed that theyíll be bringing this in soon.

When I was looking for Saputo all three RDs within a 20 minute drive didn't carry it so the one I go to most which is the Pasadena (CA) location, I asked the manager if they can just order one for me.  He was polite and said sorry, unless I order a case he can't.  He said they used to carry it but don't now because it didn't sell well.  He said different RDs sell different products depending on how well they sell.  So at least Van Nuys had it.  It is about a 35 minute drive for me if traffic is light. No problems.  Also I haven't been to "the Valley" in a long time so it was nice to go on that side of town again.  Basically whatever sells well they will carry.  So like me, in your area the Saputo Gold doesn't sell well.

RD is open to the public sometimes.  I have seen the Open To The Public sign up on different occasions but not all the time. 

If you really want it you may have to go to Van Nuys RD.  Since you are from Riverside that would be a long drive but maybe worth it to try because it is a big loaf so it will probably make lots of pizzas.  My girlfriend used to work in Moreno Valley but lived in San Gabriel.  It took 45 minutes to drive either way.  That is without traffic so from Riverside to the SG Valley may be an hour depending on where in Riverside you live, and another 40 minutes to VN.  So you are looking at a big drive each way but if you try their LMWM and like it, it will be worth the trip.

Thereís a shamrock foods warehouse in Phoenix thatís open to the public. They had an unbelievable cheese selection up until a month ago. You could find anything and everything( every Grande product, Saputo, PollyO etc) now they donít even sell blocks of whole milk mozzarella. I spoke to the manager and he said theyíve discontinued all of those products. You can find any kind of provolone that you want but no mozzarella.

Have a Shamrock's here in Albuquerque, I get my Caputo Blue 00 and Sir Galahad flour there.
Not sure why, but never thought of getting cheese from them.

Just took a look.
They have Trifoglio and Villa Frizzoni Mozz in a 6lb log.  Never heard of either.
Also Grande Mozz Fresh Cheese curd.

Next time I smoke cheese, will have to go there instead of local market.

Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

I have a question, I'd call them but they're closed. Google says their open to the public, but all the pics I'm seeing of the inside are a warehouse with tons of forklifts. So I'm guessing it's will call?  I'm confused at how I'm supposed to know what they have.  Their web site says the location near me's a hybrid warehouse. Which I'm guessing means there could be a section for non worker/delivery people like me. I'm just trying to figure out how I know what they carry.  I know I can call Monday morning and ask,  but if you fill me I might need to be there Monday morning when they open :D

First I heard of Shamrock Foods.  It would be interesting if you can get Grande there.

I wend to RD in Pasadena now and they are carrying the Belgioioso.  A sign says new product.  If you want to try that your drive to Pasadena is maybe an hour from Riverside depending on where in Riverside you live.   Might be worth the drive.  Most loafs are 5 LBS but this is 7 LBS.   If Shamrock doesn't have what you want maybe try RD in Pasadena and try BelGioioso.
