    Hi, I’m confused on the measurements. Do I go by the measurements in the parenthesis or the measurement before that?
    For example it says “2oz. (1/2cup) Mozzarella cheese”. Do I use 2oz. or 1/2 cup? Because half a cup is 4oz. not 2…

    The ounces in this recipe are measurements of weight, not volume. In recipes, if they want you to use measuring cups for ounces, the ingredient list will say fluid ounces or fl oz.
