The best pizza I ever had was in Milan, Italy. That was also where I had the worst pizza I’ve ever eaten, but that’s a whole other story. While it had nothing to do with the cheese, sometimes that’s exactly what can make or break the pizza.

Merry Water Farms in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin is home to 1,300 milking cows. The milk those cows produce is delivered to Grande Cheese where it’s made into mozzarella for pizza shops nationwide. But good cheese has to come from good milk, and in order to ensure that the milk is good, the cows that it comes from must be checked and looked after properly.

This video of the week follows Tom Strause, DVM, as he conducts a herd check at Merry Water Farms. Watch to see where good pizza starts.
