Mozzarella has a mild and delicate flavor with a milky taste. The origin of Mozzarella cheese is a mystery. Legend has it that Mozzarella was first made when cheese curds accidentally fell into a pail of hot water in a cheese factory near Naples, Italy. Today, Mozzarella is most famous as a pizza topping. It also goes great when paired with fresh tomatoes and basil to make a Caprese salad.
