    I remember that Mary Ann used Fontina cheese. I don't know of Scamorza cheese. Can you use motzolla or fontina cheese? Sorry, I know some of the spelling of the cheeses are not correct, but I hope you know what I mean. I just love her show and watch it everyday. She must have changed her channel because I can't seem to get it on channel 60 PBS now. What channel is she on? I am in the Bay Area of California. Please let me know as I hate to miss one show. This e-mail is for the prosciuttoand arugola pizza. Thanks
