Casizolu is a stringy cheese, typical of Montiferru in Sardinia. Since the medieval period, this cheese has been prepared with cows' milk from the breed Sardinian-Bruno and Sarda-Modicana. According to some written documents of the 1300s, it is a variant of the typical local Peretta.
The cold worked milk is shaped by hand until taking the shape of a pear (the small head shapes and dimensions vary according to the zone of production). After the salting phase, it is dried, and then matured for up to six months. The rind is thin and smooth, presenting a yellowish straw-colour. The paste is yellow and stringy. It is a typical table cheese but it can also be used as an ingredient in cooking.
