Mozzarella Cheese is traditionally the cheese put on pizza, but in honor of Cheese Pizza Day we decided to put other varieties of Tillamook Cheese to the test. Get your pizza dough and sauce ready!

The line-up of cheese included Tillamook Shredded Mexican Blend with four cheeses (Medium Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Queso Quesadilla & Asadero Cheese), Tillamook Shredded Italian Blend with two cheeses (Mozzarella & Parmesan Cheese), and last but not least, Tillamook Shredded Mexican Blend with two cheeses (Pepper Jack & Medium Cheddar Cheese).

All of the cheese on a pizza pan!

The first pizza we made was with Tillamook Shredded Mexican Blend with four cheeses.

We were delighted that even when melted together, you could taste all of the different cheeses on this pizza!

Next we made a cheese pizza with the Tillamook Shredded Italian Blend.

It was very tasty, but the cheese got a bit harder on top than the other pizzas did. We could have cooked it too long, but we recommend using this cheese when you are making a pizza with lots of toppings!

And finally, we made a pizza with Tillamook Shredded Mexican Blend with two cheeses.

The Pepper Jack and Medium Cheddar are the perfect combination of flavors and textures for a pizza.

Did the pizzas pass our test? Yes! In fact, all of them were delicious, but if you’re looking to a make a cheese pizza with something other than Mozzarella, the Tillamook Shredded Mexican Blend with Pepper Jack and Medium Cheddar was our top pick.

We could barely wait to dive in! The pizza that used Tillamook Shredded Mexican Blend with Pepper Jack and Medium Cheddar Cheese was in our bellies in a matter of minutes.

I still love the traditional mozerella base, but I love adding cheddar, four cheese mexican blend, and then topping it with a tiny tiny bit of feta.

Do you have a dough recipe you like? Your dough looked pretty scrumptious....

What'd you use for dough and sauce? Have any recipes that go well with Tillamook?

I always do a 45% moz, 45% FONTINA!!, and 10% italian blend. The fontina is so delightful in there, it's a real treat.

That sounds delicious, Talia! The great thing about cheese pizza is that there are so many cheese choices for every palate. And on pizza, you really can't go wrong!

Hi, Rachel. Laura actually bought her pizza dough from New Seasons Market. They have freshly made pizza dough that you can buy in their cold case. You just roll, add toppings, and bake. Yum!

That's the only way to make pizza -- with loads of cheese, right?! Thanks for chiming in!

Hi, Christopher! Laura used ready made pizza dough she purchased at New Seasons Market with Newman's Own for the sauce. Everything goes well with Tillamook! :-) If you get around to making your own cheese pizza with Tillamook we'd love for you to share your recipe! Thanks for questions!
