Fresh–Stretched Mozzarella

“It took me a long time to perfect my from-scratch pizza dough, but the choice of @metmarket fresh mozzarella was a hit from the start! Can’t imagine my pizza without it.”

Just imagine: passionate, experienced cheesemongers expertly pulling, shaping, and braiding fresh mozzarella by hand, all while the city is just beginning to wake up. This isn’t a scene from a rustic, traditional cheese shop tucked away in a quaint alley in Italy. This is happening right in our stores.

Our talented cheesemongers hand-stretch the mozzarella every morning in each of our stores. Come by early enough and you can grab a fresh sample.

It all starts with fresh curd from top-quality whole cow’s milk, which is then added to hot, salted water and stirred. Once the texture is right, it’s pulled and shaped.
