The Product

Plastic-Wrapped Mozzarella costs only 75 cents per ounce and requires just a minute to prepare.

Why You Should Buy It

Compared to its water-packed counterpart, this stuff can have a more concentrated flavor. The wrapping also firms up the cheese, making it easier to slice and better for melting on pizza or in baked pastas. Plus, for just a few cents extra you may be able to find a package that is pre-sliced--a bargain considering that soft mozz can be tricky to slice!

How You Should Use It

A firm mozzarella is great fresh or melted in your favorite Italian dish.
