Scamorza

Shop PastaCheese.com Today!

Scamorza is an Italian cow's milk cheese that is similar to Mozzarella, but firmer and drier. It is pear or gourd shaped because after it is shaped into a ball, it is tied with a cord about a third from the top to be hung. Scamorza is aged about two weeks.

Scamorza is a plastic or stretched curd cheese. This means that the curd is stretched repeatedly during its production. Provalone and Mozzarella are also stretched curd cheeses. Scamorza can be substituted for low-moisture Mozzarella in many recipes.

Scamorza's rind is thin, shiny, and smooth. It is a golden color if it is smoked.

There is a sheep's milk variety and a smoked variety as well. The smoked variety is called Scamorza Affumicata.

Where to buy

We found Scamorza at a local specialty grocery store in Northern California. However, we haven't been able to find an online distributor. Let us know if you are aware of any.
