Which cheese for this white sauce pie?
« on: November 02, 2013, 12:07:27 PM »
I made my white sauce last night. EVOO/KAAP rue, cream, garlic and fresh basil. Very nice white sauce.
So I am thinking that a white cheese, ala mozzarella, will not give the color contrast I want. The meat topping will be Vermont smoked pepperoni, garnished with fresh basil.

I have never used anything other than white cheese on my pies.
Any cheese suggestions for this pie are appreciated. Taste and presentation paramount.

Muenster would be really good - it has an orange glow to it that I believe is what you seek. Being really soft, you need to freezer it for 10 minutes or so before shredding fyi.

I habitually use a cheese called "Buffalo Wing Jack" that is available at Woodman's in Wisconsin where I live. It has interesting red veins running through it that makes for a unique presentation when melted. Plus, it's totally delicious! Though not as spicy as the name would make you think. My guess is wherever you are located there will be a comparable cheese if you happen to have access to a place with crazy rad cheese selection.

If I had an unused block on me I would post a picture, but for now I do not.
