Pizza Cheese

Unfortunately, the only thing consistent about industrially manufactured Mozzarella in South Africa is its inconsistency. Receiving a grated, diced or block product that delivers the same performance from one delivery to the next is not only desirable but essential for the modern pizza industry. Product delivered to the market typically varies in age, melt performance, degree of burning and also significantly in price.

Pizza Cheese manufactured by eThekwini Cheese and which is available in diced, grated or block Mozzarella format is a 100% Dairy product produced using the normal pasta filata cooking and stretching process of fresh curd. It is our ability to control all the production parameters that enables us to produce the most consistent product on the market.

eThekwini cheese has three types of Pizza oven on site for daily testing of our products. We have the typical belt drive Lincoln Impinger oven, a wood fired oven and a conventional domestic type oven.
