Nashua restaurants

Welcome cheese enthusiasts! This month, we’re celebrating the marvelous world of cheese in Honor of National Cheese Day on June 4th. Join us as one of your favorite Nashua restaurants shares some of the best cheeses for pizza, from classic to unexpected!

The Quintessential Shredded Mozzarella

No discussion about pizza cheese can start without the cornerstone of all pizza toppings: shredded mozzarella. This cheese is the undisputed king of pizza, known for its perfect meltability and mild flavor that complements any topping from pepperoni to pineapple. Its ability to create those delightful, stretchy cheese pulls makes it a crowd favorite and a staple in pizzerias around the world. The secret to its supremacy lies in its moisture content, which ensures a beautifully melted, bubbly top every time.

Creamy Ricotta

For those who appreciate a creamy, slightly sweet addition to their pizza, ricotta is a game-changer. Often found dolloped on white pizzas, this fresh cheese brings a luxurious texture that contrasts wonderfully with crispy crusts and savory toppings. Ricotta pairs exceptionally well with spinach, garlic, and mushrooms, making it an excellent choice for a white pizza or a vegetable-forward pie. It’s also a fantastic base for dessert pizzas when paired with fruit and a drizzle of honey.

Fresh Mozzarella

When it comes to authenticity and tradition, fresh mozzarella is the hero of the Margherita pizza. This cheese is typically packed in water, giving it a high moisture content that results in a luscious, creamy texture when melted. Fresh mozzarella is less stringy than its shredded counterpart, providing a more delicate flavor that lets the simplicity of tomato, basil, and olive oil shine through. The way fresh mozzarella bubbles and browns in a wood-fired oven is nothing short of pizza perfection.


Parmesan may not be a primary cheese on most pizzas, but it plays a vital supporting role. This hard, aged cheese is packed with umami flavor, adding a salty, nutty finish when grated over a hot pizza. It’s the perfect final touch for a variety of pies, especially those with a rich tomato sauce or hearty toppings. Parmesan’s intense flavor means a little goes a long way, making it an excellent choice for enhancing the overall taste profile of your pizza without overwhelming other ingredients.
