An often underrated cheese, scamorza is made by allowing mozzarella to dry out so that it forms a thin rind on the outside. It is sometimes smoked, giving it a light brown skin and slightly woody flavour, which becomes more pronounced when it melts in the oven or under the grill.
Try adding some chopped anchovy fillets, or topping with prosciutto crudo.
