Like all of Miyoko’s products, this dairy-free mozzarella alternative is made with minimalist ingredients, but cultured for a full-bodied flavor that rivals dairy cheese. It isn’t identical, but for many cheese fanatics, it does seem to fill a void.
Miyoko’s Vegan Mozz Fulfills Cravings for Fresh and Smoked Mozzarella
This plant-based mozzarella contains just seven ingredients and is palm oil-free. It’s popular for its easy melt and creamy finish that beckons to traditional Italian mozzarella. But tell us what you think! Leave your review and rating below.
Fresh Italian Style
This soft but slice-able cheese alternative is the dairy-free and vegan answer to buffalo mozzarella. It can be enjoyed in a dairy-free caprese salad, but most people love the way it melts atop pizzas and in paninis. It is a bit soft, so you do need to freeze it for a few minutes if you want to grate it.

What Others Are Saying ...
The only organic dairy-free cheeze I know of
Miyoko’s cheeses are delicious — the best on the market and organic as well. The only downside, as with other products in this category, is that they are WRAPPED IN PLASTIC. It is well-known that plasticizers can leach into food from containers. Not only that, her cheeses including the mozzarella, have obviously been POURED INTO THE PLASTIC WHILE HOT. The have taken the shape of the plastic. This is a worst-case scenario — hot food absorbing a maximum of plasticizers. I recommend buying her cheese-making book, however, I would NOT recommend that you use the Carageenan or Xanthan gum she includes in her recipes. Agar-Agar has a similar solidifying effect and should be much safer. Also, be careful if you make your own “rejuvilac.” If you are not familiar with doing fermentations, you could make yourself sick from contamination. A later book by Miyoko recommends sauerkraut juice as an alternative to rejuvilac. Sauerkraut is already fermented commercially, and should be a lot safer. The liquid from Eden sauerkraut (glass jar) works well. Homemade is still not as tasty, but at least you are not consuming plastic.
Great melted for nachos or Pizza
I am on an Autoimmune protocol diet for my vasculitis. I am originally from Wisconsin, so cheese has been my biggest downfall. I was serving nachos to my family, and came across this cheese. Oh my, I am IN LOVE!! It is so good to feel like I can now enjoy pizza (gluten free) again with CHEESE! I also can’t have tomatoes so with a little Pesto and this cheese, life is good again. So thankful for your product.
Great on pizza
I never leave reviews but decided to today. I just made a Simple Mills almond flour pizza and used veggies and Myoko’s for toppings. It turned out great! Good texture (not like mozzarella but still great) and flavor. Would buy again.
Wow, good stuff
I’ve had the ‘Miyokos’ vegan butter, which I really enjoy, especially when cooking or when I want that rich real butter taste. I ate the vegan mozzarella today and almost finished the entire package in one meal – no joke. That says it all. If you love classic caprese like I do, here is what I did: sliced the cheese into small thin-ish pieces, cut a roma (any) tomato, layered it – cheese/tomato/cheese/tomato, sprinkled with fresh lightly dried parsley (any herbs you like, basil like the classic caprese would be great too), drizzle olive oil, balsamic vinegar. Oh my goodness. Delicious.
Flavor is good but texture is really off
I thought the flavor was great, and it’s really creamy. I was kind of expecting the chewy texture from mozzarella though, and this was more soft, almost like a cheese spread
Yay!! Pizza again!!
We love this cheese! Pizza is the one food I miss most since eating plant-based for almost 5 years…Flavor is great and melts nicely; we also found we can make 2 pizzas with one package. After baking the pizza, we’ve been topping with balsamic vinegar tossed arugula! Yum!!
Response from Go Dairy Free
A drizzle of balsamic is brilliant Sue!
These Dreams are Made of Cheese
I love all of Miyoko’s products so I’m rather biased, but these are no exception. They’re softer and designed to melt more easily than the artisan wheels, which makes them perfect for cooking and baking, whereas the former are intended for cheese platters and crackers. That said, I’ve been known to simply slice the smoked mozz and eat it on salads, too. You truly can’t go wrong.
