Brick cheese in south Texas?
« on: February 09, 2019, 08:59:52 AM »
Hey all,

I feel that I have finally mastered my “traditional pizza”. And I’d like to start experimenting and attempting to perfect the Detroit style. I have read through the forums here countless times on the techniques used in making that style. I’ve also read about the substitution of white cheddar for brick cheese too, but, I have always been a purist and would like to try to use brick.

That being said... I live in south Texas, near San Antonio.  Does anyone know if there is a place to get brick cheese down here?  Or will I have to rely on online shopping? 

Thanks as always.
Adam

Central Market carries it here in Houston, so likely there in SA too.

All the CM's I've been in have giant cheese selections.

So that day I ended up calling them and they had it at the one in SA.  I ended up finally making something that I would proud to serve others!  It was incredible!

I used Kenji's recipe and it turned out better than I could have expected.  It was my third attempt as well.

The first several Detroit pizzas I made were with brick cheese, which I was delighted to find in a local grocery store here in Louisiana. After they stopped carrying it, I was forced to use the half-mozz half-monterey jack substitute. They've all been really good, but without a doubt the ones with brick were the best.

Thanks for the tip as I'll be sure to stop at a Central Market the next time I'm in Texas!

It certainly could have been the cheese that made it better this time. I really liked it. The caramelization of the cheese along the she’s was hands down the best part of the pie. And even better than a Pequod Style too.
