    If you’ve never had gorgonzola cheese, and you’re wondering what it is or what does gorgonzola taste like, then I’m here to help inform you! Gorgonzola is actually in the blue cheese family and has a similar appearance with a green-blue mold spread over the cheese. It has a very salty and crumbly taste as opposed to a salty and strong flavor from blue cheese.

    Gorgonzola cheese is usually made from unskimmed cow or goat milk, and has penicillium glaucum mold added to it. The mold found in this cheese is perfectly safe to eat because it doesn’t have any toxins in it which makes it safe to consume. This cheese actually dates back all the way to 876 AD in Italy!

    A good substitute for gorgonzola cheese is feta cheese. While the flavor profile for feta is milder, they texture and melt-factor is similar. Kids might be more apt to enjoy feta than a strong gorgonzola, but if gourmet pizza is your goal, aim for the stars and use both!

    Here are a few more tips for making homemade pizza:

    • It’s all about the crust! The number on complaint of homemade pizza is the dough or crust. If you are making your pizza from scratch using pizza dough, opt for a pizza stone. Pre-bake the crust and also perforate it using a fork or if you make enough pizza at home, buy a dough docker.
    • For a pre-baked crust, you can use a pizza stone, but baking it directly on the rack often works better.
    • Always consult the directions for your crust, regardless of the recipe. Cheese matters! Not just the type of cheese, but also the water content. Water makes soggy puddles on your pie. While sauce usually gets the blame, it is actually the cheese! Look for a low moisture mozzarella, but not too low or it won’t get melty. You can also shred fresh mozzarella and allow it to sit in a bowl lined with paper towels for an hour or so. This will drain out some of the extra moisture. Placing it in the refrigerator speeds up the process.
    • Don’t over top your pizza. The more ingredients, the heavier the pie and the more moisture. All results in a soggy crust.
    • Baste your crust with olive oil to create a barrier from the crust and your toppings.
    • If you are using particularly watery toppings, cooking them first and sweat out the moisture before topping.
