Every slice of cheese is different, depending on the type and size of the cheese you are using.
Generally speaking, a single slice of American or cheddar cheese averages around 1 ounce. If you’re looking for an exact measurement, it can be helpful to use a kitchen scale when cutting and measuring slices. This will ensure that each portion size is consistent in weight and volume.
In terms of thick slices versus thin slices, a thick (1/4-inch) slice weighs about 2 ounces while a thin (1/8 inch) slice weighs only 1 oz.
As you can see, the thickness makes a big difference.
When making sandwiches or enjoying other cheesy dishes where precision matters most – like pizzas – being aware of exactly how much cheese is going into every recipe can make all the difference in achieving perfect results every time.
