Mozzarella just doesn’t get enough love! It can be unassuming but shouldn’t be underestimated. The delicate flavour is perfect when used in many tarts, pastries, breads, pasta dishes and salads. I’ve included 24 of my favourites in this selection of The Best Mozzarella Recipes.
Often overlooked for stronger cheeses like mature cheddar and Parmesan, I just don’t think good old mozzarella gets enough credit. After all, where would we be without melty mozzarella on a pizza or a lovely ball of buffalo mozzarella as the hero in a caprese salad?
I’ve trawled my archives and pilfered recipes from other amazing foodie sites to bring you this collection of 24 recipes featuring mozzarella. There is everything from cheesy garlic bread swirls to quiches and tarts, pasta bakes and stuffed meatballs to baked rice and potatoes and everything in between.

Great to have some more mozzarella recipes as I usually have some in the fridge:-) Now which one to make first….?
I’d recommend making the Ham & Cheese casserole this evening and it’ll be all ready to bake off for breakfast/brunch tomorrow morning 🙂
