Fresh Mozzarella is typically white, however when seasoned it can change to light yellow, depending on the animal’s diet. Due to its high moisture content, it is traditionally served the day after it is made, however it can be kept in brine for a week, or even longer if packaged well.
Mozzarella was first cited in an Italian cookbook in 1570. Nowadays, Mozzarella can be twisted to form a plait, and called Treccia. You can also buy it as a smoked cheese, called Affumicata.
When making Steak Pizza, it’s always handy to have the right pizza making tools. Here’s what items I always recommend…
You will find having a seive such a useful element for pizza making as well as all your baking. It’s great to filter all flours through a fine mesh sieve, to make sure they’re ready for use.
Good quality metal or plastic bench scrapers make it so much esier to both cut your dough, and scrape your bench. I prefer plastic to avoid scratching my bench.
Pizza making is all about precision, so having a full set of both wet and dry measuring cups on hand is critical. It is so important when making pizza dough to accurately measure all your ingredients.
When it comes to delicious pizza toppings, beef fillet should be at the top of your list. Many people enjoy the tender texture and robust flavor that a quality cut of beef can provide to their favorite pizzas.
Beef steak pieces on your cheese-filled delight, there’s no denying that adding beef to your pizza is an easy way to take it from good to great.
