Dried scamorza


Made from pasteurized cow’s milk, dried scamorza is a short-dried mozzarella with a pear shape and a waist on its top end.

Di Pasquo's scamorza cheese


Breathtakingly delicious.

Scamorza appassita is a chewy and stringy cheese with a pear-like shape and a sweet and milky taste. It can be compared to a firm and dry mozzarella. Indeed, they both belong to the pasta filata family sharing the same cheese-making process. Once shaped, scamorzas are tied 1/3 of the way from the top and hung in strings to dry, hence their pear-like shape. This light aging process usually lasts about two weeks. During the ripening, the scamorza develops an edible, semi-soft rind.

Smooth and elastic, its melting consistency and piquant yet milky flavor delight your taste buds. The ribbon around its neck and the knoblike handle on top make it easy to hang wherever you want in your kitchen, tasting it when perfectly ripened. 

Scamorza is made from pasteurized Italian milk and is gluten-free. It is indeed a safe food for pregnancy and celiac disease. 


Scamorza: recipes

Perfect for melting, dried scamorza is a great mozzarella substitute with a stronger and more dominant flavor. It is perfectly delicious on its own but it is also a winning ingredient in many cooked dishes. It shreds well and can also be grilled or fried. Use it to flavor baking dishes and pizzas, or eat it alone, fresh or grilled. 

Enjoy the unique taste of Di Pasquo’s scamorza.
