What is the best mozzarella for pizza? We love fresh mozzarella that is not packed in water. Grated cheese does not work for this recipe. We love the BelGioioso brand. I find it every market (or buy something similar). The cheese is cut into 1/2-inch cubes and sprinkled over the pizza.
Can I make this recipe ahead of time? Yes, you can make this pizza ahead of time. Either serve at room temperature or reheat it before serving.
