  • Originally, mozzarella was made using only water buffalo milk.
  • Original and traditionally made mozzarella is cut by hands and that’s how it got its name. “Mozzare” means to chop off or cut off.

Mozzarella was originated in Campania, not by the locals but by the Normans who invaded the southern Italy in the late 11th century.
