Maybe you’ve never heard of bread cheese, let alone pizza bread cheese. Maybe before you saw the package in Trader Joe’s you assumed it might mean cheese on top of bread, or bread stuffed with cheese, or maybe bread that has been somehow transmogrified into cheese. But no: Bread cheese, also known as juustoleipä, a Finnish delicacy, is a mild, buttery cheese.
What makes bread cheese really special is its texture. Like Halloumi or paneer, it’s a cheese that you can griddle without melting. That means you can get a delicious crispy crust on the cheese before you eat it.
