After World War II, American soldiers returned home with a taste for a delicious new food that they discovered in Italy — pizza! — which featured a cheese they’d never tried before: mozzarella. Today, mozzarella is America’s most popular cheese, and Wisconsin makes more of it than anywhere else. Our cheesemakers produce nearly 1 billion pounds of this mild and melty, irresistible cheese each year. Creamy white, pliable and delicious, we’re proud to produce America’s number one cheese for America’s favorite food (pizza). Grazie, Italy!
