Grande Mozzarella


I live in Petaluma, CA and have been making theses pizzas for several years now. Recently I went to Whole Foods to buy some Grande Cheese and was told that they no longer carry that brand. Does anyone know who would carry it in Sonoma or Marin County? Is there a brand equal to or better then Grande that is available for retail purchase?

How about Cowgirl? I've not had Grande cheese, but I've had Cowgirl and really like it (though I've not used it on pizzas).

Mollie Stone's.

They charge an arm and leg though. Their shops are notoriously overpriced.

Thanks for the quick response. I haven't tried Cowgirl, however before I left Whole Foods yesterday I grabbed two of their blocks of whole milk mozzarella. A few months ago I had made six dough balls and only used four. The extra two were frozen and stored in a freezer bag. Yesterday, as an experiment, I took them out and thawed them to make two Cal Italia pies. The Whole Foods mozzarella was great and the frozen doughs were perfect. If I find any better cheese I will keep you posted, thanks again.

Grande is really overpriced and hard to find in stores on the west coast especially. There is a really nice cheese that's easily available though with similar results as Grande. Head over to a Costco Business Center (not the normal costco, this one is specific for businesses, just google it), and buy a block of Bella Rosano.

No problem! I was searching for grande for years until I randomly saw it there while picking up proscuitto. It’s ~7.49 a pound, I just picked some up today to test on my Roccbox.

Robert, what did you think? Grande is not cheap, but it's a very high quality product.
