Selecting the perfect ingredients for your recipes is critical—especially when it comes to something as important as pizza cheese. Read on and learn more about the benefits of Bacio®.

Bacio is specially crafted in a state-of-the-art cheese manufacturing facility in the San Joaquin Valley of California, one of the nation’s leading milk-producing regions. This valley is known for the quality and consistency of its dairy farms.

Bacio is crafted with both locally produced and specially imported buffalo milk. Our buffalo milk has been thoroughly tested to ensure compliance with our premium quality expectations.

Sorry, but that’s a secret! Our unique recipe is the result of years of development. While the exact recipe is confidential, we can reveal that our signature Kiss of Buffalo Milk™ is the secret behind Bacio’s unsurpassed flavor, melt, stretch and reheat characteristics.

Mozzarella, as defined by FDA guidelines, does not include the mixing of cow and buffalo milk. However, we found it’s this very special combination that makes Bacio so exceptional and unique.

No, Bacio is different than mozzarella di bufala or fresh buffalo mozzarella. Our cheese is more closely related to traditional mozzarella that is used on pizzas and other Italian dishes.

Bacio is the Italian word for kiss, which is an homage to the signature Kiss of Buffalo Milk™ that sets our pizza cheese apart from any other.
