Is Goat Cheese Good For Pizza?

If people can put pineapple on pizza, then I can put goat cheese on pizza!

Not only is goat cheese delicious on pizza but it’s also great in appetizers, salads, main dishes, desserts, and more!

Unlike other boring cheese (just kidding I LOVE all cheese), goat cheese brings flavor to the dish. With a velvety, creamy texture and a tangy-sweet mild taste.

What Does Goat Cheese Taste Like On Pizza?

Creamy, buttery, silky, smooth, rich, mild, slightly tangy, earthy, and delicious are all adjectives I would use to describe goat cheese.

What a lot of people don’t realize about goat milk and goat cheese is the process before it becomes cheese. Several factors play a role in the end product changing the flavor, such as age.

The longer the cheese ages, the more intense the flavor. I’ll share more about this subject under ‘how to make goat cheese’.

Goat cheese on pizza taste amazing! We have 33 recipes for you to add to your menu. From blueberry to buttermilk.

Does Goat Cheese Melt On Pizza?

We are all most familiar with the traditional pizza sold in many chain restaurants with a basic red sauce and mozzarella cheese.

Mozzarella cheese is white and shredded with a stretchy consistency that spreads when heated.

Goat Cheese Pizza looks differently because it does not stretch and spread as it heats.

Instead, it provides this melt in your mouth morsels of goodness in all the right places.

Goat Cheese Doesn’t Melt In The Oven

It should be noted that goat cheese on pizza does melt, and it does in fact melt in your oven. Just not the way you are accustomed to cheese melting.

Goat cheese closely resembles its original form when baked. It does all its melting on the inside.

In other words, if you sliced a 2″ round of goat cheese and place it on top of your pizza, when you remove it from the oven, it will look like it did when you placed it in the oven.

Even when it is cooked to the point of a slight caramel color on the outside, the inside is rich and creamy.

How to Make Goat Cheese

As I mentioned earlier, how the goat milk is processed and even the breed of goat, have a lot to do with the end product.

We raise Nigerian Dwarf Goats specifically for that reason. They have a high fat content, making their milk rich and creamy, and the cheese from that milk is AMAZING.

Goat milk, and goat cheese, is more widely consumed in other countries over cows milk and cheese.

I get a little chuckle when people taste goat milk for the very first time and say ‘it tastes just like milk!. Yep, it tastes just like milk.

If you are toying with the idea of raising your own goats to have fresh goat milk, and even better, fresh goat cheese, you need to pick a goat breed that is best for you.

You also need to consider all the pros and cons as to raising goats. I go over all of those in my article Why You Don’t Want Goats.

If you can get your hands on some fresh goat milk, consider making fresh cheese for your pizza.

Our friends shared their step-by-step process with you on how to make cheese from scratch.

I highly suggest taking a cheese making class if you can find one nearby, they are so much fun!
