Haloumi Cheese - is this suitable to use on pizza?

music_note, Mar 7, 10:21pm
I've bbq'd it - so delicious - and think it would work well on pizza, maybe with some other cheese as well - has anyone tried this? Thanks for help.

It wouldn't melt and spread, but would be great thinly sliced and placed over the pizza. Haloumi traditionally is made in Cyprus, where I have family. It is known there as the "female" cheese and it is made in a slab and then folded so it is shaped like a uterus. I first had Haloumi in 1987 and I'm delighted it can be bought here now. Careful though, it contains more fat that other cheeses.

Thanks Camrob - special lunch to make today so will use it as well on the pizza. Thanks for your help.
