Mozzarella

This cheese is mild, tasty and always a hit. Every year, Wisconsin cheesemakers produce more than 850 million pounds of mozzarella, a cheese that ranks second only to cheddar in popularity in the United States. An Italian favorite, this cheese gained popularity in America following World War II, as vets returned home with a craving for the delicious foods they ate while overseas. Mozzarella has a lower moisture content than Fresh Mozzarella, giving it a much longer shelf life.

Tomatoes, cured meats, pesto, black olives, and roasted red peppers.
