Thread: Munster cheese on pizza?

  1. #1
    zxcvbob Guest

    Default Munster cheese on pizza?

    Not real Alsatian muenster, but the sliced American kind with the
    orange food coloring on the "rind". Do you think it would work? Or
    should I just stick with provolone and/or American (low moisture)
    mozzarella?

    I bought a half a pound of munster cheese last week because it was
    on sale, and I know from past experience that it doesn't make that
    great a sandwich.

    It's pretty bland. Why wouldn't it work?
    It's also somewhat fatty, so it should melt okay.

    I don't know. I would stick with provolone and mozzarella.
    Actually, I use mozzarella and parmesan.

    Does someone else in your family like it? I ask because I cannot
    imagine buying cheese, even on sale, that I didn't think would be good
    in a sandwich and had no other use for. We like monster cheese in our
    house. We thought it made a great grilled cheese sandwich, and we eat
    it with ham or other meats in sandwiches.

    Ooo, noooo. You are not worthy of muenster cheese. It is wonderful on
    sandwiches. But it is best cold so I think not good for pizza. Leave the
    muenster to those of us who love it. For your pizza use Italian mozzarella.

    I don't know about the "monster" part, but I'm with you. I tend to not
    buy any cheese that is experimental for use. Cheese is too expensive to
    experiment with.. my opinion of course.

    But if someone I trust to have good taste, if they post a recipe, I will
    give it a try.

    BTW, I was just poking you on the "monster" thing. If there is anyone
    that doesn't spend time spelling correctly, or using proper grammar, it
    is me.

    I hope you have a nice week :-)

    It's just our family name for muenster. Started with my husband, but
    of course, the children love it. Same way with roast beast, pyonders,
    slamber, nutball soup and gooballs. I'll let others decipher what those
    are.

    S'alright.

    Thank you. It is a busy week for us here, but our first term break
    is the week after that.

    I remember as a teenager, a German schoolmate's mother serving us Muenster
    and black radish sandwiches on pumpernickel with a smear of sweet butter.
    Very tasty, but I imagine it was real Alsatian Muenster.

    I see no reason why you couldn't use your cheese on a pizza. Folks put all
    kinds of cheese on pizza. You'd at least be combining it with various
    other flavors.

    Moz by itself can be bland so I mix in other cheese like provolone and swiss
    and sometimes even a nice sharp cheddar. Monster cheese would be good too.

    I see no reason why it would not work.
    I happen to like Muenster.

    My favorite way to serve it tho' is grated and used in a cheese ball.

    I wouldn't do it, but then I don't make pizza with any cheese I'd call
    bland. My mozzarella from the supermarket does a milky dance on my tongue.
    When I make my favorite pizza it has only a soft cheese much like goat
    cheese and arugula drizzled with best olive oil.

    There are pizzas on the menu with milder cheeses, but usually paired with
    speck, or smoked ham, and certainly not with tomato, etc. It hardly seems
    worth using cheese if you smother it.

    Either you are not using good enough mozzarella, or you are drowning it with
    too many strong flavors.

    Sorry - but I wouldn't like it on pizza. Mozza or nothing. It there
    maybe a cheese soup that might call for muenster?

    Will it melt well? I can remember many breakfasts when I was a
    kid of toasted Italian-type bread, buttered and still hot, with
    slices of real imported Muenster softening on top and very milky
    coffee to drink. Yum!

    Bob,
    It's actually really good in omelets. My SO likes the stuff so I buy it for
    her. I didn't like it very much until I used it in a mushroom omelet. Tasted
    great.

    I think it was the 'Munchee' brand.

    I make pizza like they do in Italy for the most part Sauce, which is
    tomatoes run through a mill, cheese, some fresh herbs like basil leaves and
    oregano and parmesan to finish. I've had freshly made moz and it is divine.
    But kind of bland. A little Swiss and provolone really add a nice dimension
    of flavor. I'm goig for flavor not authenticity.

    Bob,

    Since you've got the stuff. Give it a try or you'll never know.

    That said I've never tried Munster.

    My only question would be, does Munster melt faster/same as/slower than
    Mozzarella? So the pizza comes out just right at the same time,

    Good luck,

    Andy

    I like muenster but it's too good to waste on pizza. Muenster is
    wonderful on seeded rye with lettuce, tomato, and Spam. Spam is also
    too good to waste on pizza.

    I like Munster for melting - especially on French Onion Soup. But for
    melting and FLAVOR you can't beat Havarti. Try plain (not dill etc,)
    havarti on lavosh - Armenian Cracker Bread. Top with raw sweet
    onion, bell peppers, black olives and stick it in the oven till the
    cheese bubbles. (watch carefully!) Break into pieces about the size
    of a playing card and serve with wine or beer.
