Why do we love pizza so much? Is it the pizza crust or the toppings? No, it is the oodles of cheese that makes pizza such a loved dish. It's a comfort food for many; the gooey, rich cheese warms up your taste buds and your appetite. There are many types of cheese out there but mozzarella cheese is the one that is predominantly used to garnish the pizza. Many people prefer preparing pizza at home as it is quite easy to make. If you like home-cooked food, you may dove deeper and make pizza cheese as well at home. Yes, you heard us!
This pizza cheese is almost as good as the mozzarella cheese you get in market. It is super easy to make at home; and once you'll see the recipe, you'll wonder why were you using store-bought mozzarella cheese all this time?! You need just a couple of commonly available ingredients to get started. Warm raw full fat milk and turn off the gas, and add white vinegar. Remember to add it in parts while stirring continuously. Soon the milk will start curdling and water will separate and paneer will be formed. Strain it to drain the water. Squeeze it thoroughly till all the water is drained out and you are left with a dry blob of paneer.
(Quick Tip: The drained water can be used to make gravies for sabzi, to knead flour, or to make kadhi.)
Next, put the paneer in hot water for few minutes, squeeze again. This will bring elasticity and smoothness to the cheese. Keep repeating the process exactly like it is shown in the recipe video shared on YouTube channel 'Cook With Parul'. In the end, after you've dipped it in cold water, refrigerate it. You'll get the perfect store-like pizza cheese without any rennet solution. There, we saw you slurping. So let's get started now.
