Pizza with Pecorino Romano cheese simply delicious!

Pecorini are a family of hard, Italian cheeses crafted from sheep's milk. The Italian word pecora (plural pecore) means sheep. A typical pecorino cheese is sharp, very salty, and aged, with pronounced, strong flavors. Pecorini are the grana of choice in bolder pasta dishes, where the dish's flavors might overwhelm Parmigiano-Reggiano. Pecorino is also ideal for dishes where the sharp, salty notes are a welcome contrast, or where the savory, umami character of Parmigiano-Reggiano is inappropriate.

Pecorino Romano is Rome's pecorino, produced around Lazio province in local cheese shops from local sheep. Pecorino Romano was a staple of Roman legionaries and allegedly the recipe remains unchanged to this day. The cheese boasts Italy's PDO geographic indication.

Pecorino Romano was a staple in the diet for the legionaries of ancient Rome. Today, it is still made according to the original recipe and is one of Italy's oldest cheeses.

meno male che ci siete tutti voi e un po non penso ...
