A perfect example of a semi soft cheese is Mozzarella di Buffalla, a smooth cheese with an elastic and pliable texture. Semi-soft cheeses have a very good melting characteristic, so they are great for cooking and ideal for Panini sandwiches and pizzas. Their flavor can vary dramatically, but they blend well with other cheeses, since they tend to be young and mild. You'll find them typically in your four cheese sauces and pizzas. Some of our most popular semi-soft cheese include Fontina, Havarti and some blue cheeses like Roquefort. Discover them all below!
