    I took this photo from the pizza places website because my camera isn't good. The cheese isn't as greasy in real life as it in the picture it looks more like the top part whre it's white throughout the whole pizza. It's like splotches of white cheese sort of, it tastes really good but I don't know what it's called. I don't think I've ever had white splotchy cheese before.

    Hi spicyfood,

    It would be hard enough to identify in it's natural state, even more difficult if melted...

    I recommend asking the folks at the Pizza shop.

    My guess would be some sort of pasteurized. processed, chemically enhanced cheese-like food product labeled as "pizza cheese" by the factory that made it.

    Fresh Mozzarella would look a bit blotchy as it melts and would come out white looking. It could also be ricotta. Send me a PM with the name and city of the Restaurant so I could see more pics......Thanks......

    I'd think it was probably mozzarella - that is the most likely.

    The photo seems to be from The Slice Company. Their menus include mozzarella on almost all the pizzas - they describe it as 'Fresh house made mozzarella'.

    Fresh mozz melts like that! I buy it on occasion to make pizza. Doesn't get that stringy texture of pre-grated mozz...

    I was going to say feta, think the appearance would come close, but concensus has got to be right here. NO DAMN MEAT ON MY PIZZA THOUGH (if I'm going to cheat on my restricted diet in the first place). Eggplant, artichoke, onions, sparse thin sliced half-rings of green pepper and, absolutely, salt-cured olives, with some feta of course. Though a Gruyere cheese parmasan baschamel with a bit of a popular French smoked ham I wouldn't turn down a bite of.
