You guys this low carb pizza crust has revolutionized my grain-free, low starch diet. It’s GOOD. Damn Good. Especially with melty gooey water buffalo mozzarella cheese on top.
This past week I got my first introduction to Water Buffalo Mozzarella. And that stuff is GOOD too! I was surprised to read that traditionally all mozzarella cheese made in Italy is made from water buffalo milk, it’s only in the US that mozzarella comes from cow’s milk. Now I have a an allergy to cow based dairy, but I am sooo happy as I have had zero issues with Water Buffalo Mozzarella! I also have zero issues with goat’s milk mozzarella. There is still life and damn good pizza after a cow-dairy allergy! I was gifted the Water Buffalo Mozzarella by the cheese monger at Whole Foods, as I was asking him all sorts of questions about different goat and sheep cheeses, and I was a bit hesitant on trying the water buffalo cheese, so to he let me try it for free! I love when they do that at Whole Foods! It pays to ask lots of questions sometimes.
I was beyond pleasantly surprised with how melty, stretchy, lightly salty, yummy the melted water buffalo mozzarella became when I used it as a cheese topping on this pizza. Flipping amazing! And water buffalo cheese is currently at the top of my shopping list for my next trip to town.
The brand of water buffalo cheese I used is made by Buf Creamery, it comes from grass-fed water buffalo, and I found this statement from their FAQ page quite interesting:
“Water Buffalo? There are an estimated 172 million domestic water buffalo worldwide, and more human beings depend on them than any other domestic animal. Water buffalo originated in India and China and first found their way to Italy around 600 AD.” Source Buf Creamery FAQ
