Wisconsin Cheeses Make Domino’s Pizza Extra Yummy

The Wisconsin 6 Cheese pizza introduced by Domino’s last month takes their efforts of getting behind the pizza one giant step further. As part of Domino’s American Legends specialtypizza line, the Wisconsin 6 adds cheese head fanaticism to Domino’s newhand-tossed crust and tasty herbed sauce proving once again that onlytop quality fresh ingredients are used to make each and every pizza.

As European settlers migrated west across the United States, Wisconsin’s climate and rolling grasslands made it perfect for farming.First it was wheat, hops, and other grains and then in 1841, dairyfarming blossomed yielding an abundance of top-quality milk. In order topreserve the ever increasing quantities of excess milk, farmers madecheese on family farms but it didn’t take long for commercial productionto catch on. Swisswas among the first Old-World cheeses produced in Wisconsin. ThenItalians brought their popular Mozzarella and Provolone as well as theblue-veined Gorgonzola. The French produced creamy, soft-ripenedCamembert & Brie and from Germany came the delights of Muenster andLimburger. The English contributed Cheddar, and the Dutch, Gouda andEdam. Innovative new cheeses like Colby were also created.

Today, nearly 13,000 dairy farms throughout Wisconsin supply milk used in the 2.6 billion pounds of cheese produced annually. No otherState has more skilled and licensed cheese makers or offers a Master Cheesemaker Programthat matches European standards. Domino’s taps into this heritage withtheir Wisconsin 6 by combining a healthy cross-cut of WisconsinMozzarella, Feta, Provolone, Cheddar, Parmesan and Asiago on a crustsprinkled with oregano. In fact, their promotional video shot on location in Blanchardville, Wisconsinopens with real consumers assuming they are attending a focus groupwithin an office building but are shocked when the walls collapserevealing they are actually in the middle of a dairy farm. As a specialtreat, I’m offering a $20 Domino’s gift card to anyone who leaves thebest description of their favorite cheese and why it should beon a pizza.
