    Default What does Gouda Cheese Taste Like? *Recipe Review*

    I am not familiar at all with this Type of Cheese and want to try a new recipe for BBQ Chicken Pizza on the Grill tonight. Is it a strong Flavor or a Mild Flavor? What would you compare it to?

    I don't want to make this and not like it! If need be, I'll sub a different kind.

    Thanks for the Input!

    Very strong pungent taste but very good. Maybe like a really strong Swiss.

    Pungent is a good word. It's delish. Try it! Babe of a DH love smoked gouda!

    I would say more sweet when not aged but can be pungent as it ages longer but it is not overwhelming and I think your recipe sounds really good. Ususally it is wrapped in wax so do not eat that part - just read how long it is aged for and maybe not get the smoked. Will you share the recipe if it is good??

    Gouda is a wonderful cheese and perfect with wine, fruit and nuts!!

    Thanks for your input Gals! I think I will give it a shot and do Gouda on one of the Pizza's. I guess I should know if I don't like it My Husband probably will, so I'll be safe. I'll be using the Boboli Crusts for this one.

    Here's the recipe I'm trying tonight.....It came from Cooks.com

    Isn't this place great, to ask and learn about all kinds of things we've never been exposed to? I've never tried Gouda, either, and I love cheese.

    Let us know how your recipe turns out....sounds good.

    Well, since it calls for smoked gouda, then use the smoked. This looks like a great pizza. I think I remember seeing this in the magazine. Please let us know how it turns out.

    I had Gouda once before, and if I remember correctly I thought it tasted a bit like colby/cheddar. That recipe looks really good.

    Just thought I'd let you all know we thought this Pizza was Delicious!
    I ended up using 2 Chicken Breasts from the Deli and just kinda hand shredded it into pieces. You were right on the Smoked Gouda Cheese!
    A very tasty Cheese it is! Next time I make it I actually think I may double the Gouda as it wasn't as destinct a flavor I think because of the BBQ Sauce kinda covering it up. I used Ken Davis Brand which was very good too.
    I think you'd like it.....Give it a try sometime! Very Easy and Quick cooking time!
