Regarding this, which mozzarella is best for melting?
As for flavor, low-moisture mozzarella is saltier and denser. Depending on how long it's aged and at the temperature it's held at, various bacteria can help it to acquire some of the tangy characteristics of aged cheeses like a provolone or cheddar. For pure meltability, nothing beats low-moisture mozzarella.
Similarly, can I use fresh mozzarella instead of shredded? yep, you guessed it -- slices of Mozzarella instead of shredded cheese. This is a classic pie! There shouldn't be an issue, but balled mozzarella has more moisture than the pre-shredded stuff. You might want to slice it and then press it between some paper towels to get the excess moisture out.
Moreover, why is my mozzarella not melting?
Low moisture and low fat cheeses don't melt well. Low moisture and low fat cheeses don't melt well.
What's the difference between mozzarella and fresh mozzarella?
The mozzarella you see in plastic-wrapped bricks in the supermarket dairy case is typically made in a factory. Fresh mozzarella, handmade in smaller batches from whole milk, has a much softer, buttery texture and a delicate flavor.
