While we are at it talking about different cheese and if you can add them on your pizza or not, Feta cheese is the one of the most popular cheese and most of the people are confused if you can add them on pizzas or not.
I believe it is a personal choice but if you ask me I do not add it to my pizza. Not that it is a bad cheese or it makes the pizza taste bad, but to me, it just does not make any difference.
There are different kind of cheeses that are added in a pizza based on their taste and texture. In the case of feta cheese, neither does it melt like Gouda cheese nor does it give a stringy texture like the Mozzarella cheese.
So, does it still make sense to add feta cheese in my pizza?
Well, atleast for me it does not but if you are someone who fancies feta cheese and think that it can never go wrong with any dish then you are most welcome to use it.
However, if you are reading this post just to know if this is an ideal cheese for pizza then I would say NO, it’s not. You have way better cheeses out that that have textures that go well with pizzas and you can try them out.
What are the types of cheeses you should use in Pizza?
Personally, I would say Mozerella cheese is hte best pizza cheese. Well, it is called pizza cheese for a reason, it is stringy gives a hint of creamy flavor and not that overpowering.
Freshly made mozzarella cheese is ideal for cooking as with high moisture content in it you get the perfect bowing effect that you are looking for on your pizza.
I like to mix a little bit of cheddar and provolone cheese but both these kinds of cheese alone cannot be used on teh pizza as they are just not made for that higher temperature cooking.
If you just add these cheese you would see that the fat separates from the cheese giving it a not so appealing look.
This does not happen in the case of Mozerella cheese and it browns really well because of the high moisture content as well.
What about Feta?
Feta can be used on top of cheese but it is not going to melt or give a stringy texture. Honestly, I do not see it performing well with dishes where you expect the cheese to either melt or give a good texture once it undergoes heat.
It is good to put in salads and other dishes where it does not come in direct contact with heat but otherwise you might want to reconsider your cheese options if you are thinking that it will go well with pizzas.
In my opinion, it is better to add it later if you are into this cheese, like on top of a slice or something otherwise, itis best to stick with Mozerella cheese and cheddar cheese mix for your pizzas.
