Ricotta is made from the whey proteins left behind during the cheese making process. It is sweet and fragrant with a smooth and very creamy, almost blancmange texture.
We use Ricotta is both sweet and savoury applications. At our Pizzeria we make a baked ricotta cheese, and the consistency is light, creamy and delicious. We also put Ricotta on our Bianca pizza along with Smoked Scamorza and Mozzarella.
