Using cheese on a Pizza is something that I live for and it is the same case for most of us. Having the perfect pizza blend is something that would really give your homemade pizzas a kick and make it different from the rest.
Now, every restaurant has its own pizza blend and it would not kill you to explore a little and figure out the different combinations that would work perfectly well with your pizzas.
There were a few blogs that suggest going with the 80/10/10 ratio for pizza cheese is going to be amazing which would be of mozzarella, cheddar and provolone.
I did try this at home and honestly, it did taste pretty good but I wanted to try out a pizza blend that would best go with my taste.
Making your own pizza blend
You can make your own pizza blend and the best part, you can make it with any cheese that you like. My favorite blend ratio has to be 40/30/30 which comprises of mozzarella, cheddar, and provolone respectively.
Yes, I like a lot of punch in my pizza and I can get that only from this cheese combination as said above. There are other combinations that I have as well so its all about trial and error.
A good thing about pizza blends is that there is no error as cheese on anything tastes really good. You are going to love every combination but the trick is to get a combo that blows your mind.
Having a perfect pizza blend also helps you establish a really nice creamy and cheesy look to your pizza where the pizza is brown enough.
My mistakes in the past…
There was a time when I used too much mozzarella cheese and no cheese blend thinking that too much cheese never harmed any pizza but trust me it does.
The Pizza just got heavy and there was not much flavor in it whatsoever. The pizza slice was pretty heavy that’s when I realized its all about using cheese blends.
When you use cheese blends you are packing more flavors on your pizzas and that happens without loading the pizza with some extra cheese.
How much amount of cheese blend is the right amount?
Honestly, these days it is just a trend to load the pizza with as much as cheese as it can possibly hold. But in reality, I think the pizza is all about having a perfectly cooked crispy crust with a little bit of cheese to add some flavor.
So, instead of just packing the crust with cheese or using a lot of it, make sure you have flavourful cheese in your blend that would render your pizza a really nice taste.
This makes your pizza so much better rather than just heaping a lot of cheese and then just saying- Look how cheesy and stringy this pizza is!
These marketing techniques are so over the top by pizza companies when in reality if you make a pizza at home with your cheese blend, you can get much better results without eating too many calories.
You are going to save a lot of calories but using hte right amount of cheeses in order to give a really flavourful bite. Make sure you use some really strong flavor cheese so that when used in small quantities in your pizza it gives you an amazing taste.
