DTW: Whole milk mozzarella?

Goneril | | Dec 27, 2011 07:25 PM

I've got the urge to make Chicago-style (aka deep dish) pizza. I'm set on recipe and equipment, but, my favorite recipe calls for whole milk mozzarella. Last time I made it, I got some 1 pound blocks of Polly-O from Sparrow Market in A2 and shredded them in a Cuisinart. The pizza was delicious. Sparrow, though, is an hour or so from my house, and I'm feeling lazy.

I'm not looking for fresh mozzarella; that's easy to find, but it'd make pizza that'd be way, way too wet. Low moisture, part-skim would work if I can't find whole milk (or don't feel like driving to A2), but it wouldn't be as creamy as the whole milk.

So, Hiller's? Holiday Market in Canton? Busch's? I called Costco earlier today; they only have part-skim. I'd prefer a place near Canton, Livonia, or Dearborn. Plum Market might have it, but the closest one to me is probably the one in A2. If I'm gonna drive to A2, I'd rather to go Sparrow, so I've then got a perfectly good excuse to stop at Monahan's for fish and chips or chowder.

Not to be too difficult, but I should add that I don't shop at Wal-Mart or Sam's.
