Did you know that there were 388 million pizza servings consumed by Australians in the year ending March 2023*? With the margherita being the standout classic of the pizza family, it’s important to have this firm favourite on any good pizza menu. As a classic margherita has minimal ingredients – tomato and cheese – it’s essential to use quality cheese (as that’s the real hero of the dish) which is why Caboolture is best. With its unique melt-and-stretch characteristics, Caboolture Mozzarella makes the ultimate pizza cheese.
