Frequently Asked Questions(FAQs)

1. What cheeses blend well together?

Image Credits: medicalnewstoday.com

Any time you want to mix cheeses pick three or more with different flavors. For instance, while making our mac and cheese pizza, we picked mozzarella for its creamy, dreamy, and gooey texture, sharp cheddar for its bold flavor, and parmesan for its delicious, salty and nutty edge.

2. How do I achieve a creamy mac and cheese?

The secret to creamy mac and cheese, whether cooking it from scratch or in a box, is to ensure that the pasta is cooked till firm when bitten(al dente). Next, go for heavy cream instead of milk and shred the cheese yourself.

3. What is the best pizza sauce?

Image Credits: seriouseats.com

Rao's pizza sauce, originally from a New York restaurant, is my favorite. However, it does cost a pretty penny. So if you can buy the sauce, it will not be the end of the world if you decide to be economical and opt for a cheaper brand. The recipe will still work no matter what brand you select, so save your coins if you need to!

4. Can I eat pizza every day?

Image Credits: nypost.com

No, because there is such a thing as too much pizza. Pizza can be a part of your diet if you eat a slice once a week with a side of vegetables. However, if you eat 4 slices or more regularly, you risk getting heart disease.

This is because most pizzas are made of high-fat toppings and artery-clogging saturated fats from cheese and processed meat. Additionally, high-fat processed meats like a bacon also increase the risk of certain forms of cancer. So, swap the high-fat processed meats for fiber-filled vegetables whenever you are craving pizza.

You may also gain weight and even become obese, all thanks to eating too much pizza regularly. This is because pizza may be made of refined wheat flour with no fiber. Fiber lowers the risk of colon cancer, reduces high cholesterol, and maintains a healthy gut.
