Provolone Cheese is something that I generally use in my pizza because of its sharp flavor.
If you are a pizza enthusiast and love making pizzas then you would be interested in knowing how provolone helps to add flavors to the pizza and makes it taste a hundred times better than just using plain mozzarella cheese.
Provolone has been my favorite companion along with cheddar cheese as it helps add immense flavor to my pizzas. There is a lot of other cheese that I have been exploring lately but the Provolone cheese has been my favorite always.
How to add Provolone cheese to the Pizza?
Provolone cheese when grated and added to pizza gives it a really nice sharp taste which compensates for the basic taste that you get from hte Mozerella cheese.
In my pizza cheese blend, I always use the Provolone cheese as one of the cheeses and you are going to see that adding just a small quantity of it is going to make a huge difference in your overall pizza taste.
The key to adding cheese in the pizza blend is that when added a little bit on the pizza it renders a lot of flavors.
You do not need to load your pizza with a lot of cheese but rather just sprinkle it enough so that there is a perfect blend in the flavor of the pizza dough and the cheese.
What kind of provolone cheese do you use?
Fresh Provolone cheese is going to taste a little bit sweet and creamy while a little older cheese tastes sharp and adds more flavor to the pizza.
If you are someone who is looking to get the perfect taste for your pizza then you might want to add this cheese in really small quantities to mozzarella cheese.
The Provolone cheese does not have the stringy nature that you get from Mozerella which is kind of the star of the show for most of hte pizza lovers.
However, mixing both of them gives you the right taste that texture which you are looking for in a nicely cooked pizza. There is a lot of other cheeses that you can add but you can never go wrong with mozzarella and provolone cheese together.
Are you using a pizza cheese blend?
The next question that comes in your mind is if you are using the right pizza cheese blend and the answer to this question is- Any cheese blend that gives your pizza the perfect taste is a perfect cheese blend.
There is a lot that you can explore with cheese blends and as said in one of my earlier posts, my favorite cheese blends have to be 40/30/30 of Mozerella, Provolone, and Cheddar cheese respectively.
Basically, I would add a little bit of cheese on top and it would give me a lot of flavor because of the presence of the Provolone and Cheddar cheese.
