What's the best way to slice fresh mozzarella?

I love to use fresh mozzarella on pizza when I make it. You know the kind: big, white, round balls of cheesy goodness. The stuff you find on real, authentic pizza made by Italians and other folks who know what they are doing.
The problem is, every time I try to cut it thin, the slices aren't uniform and don't cook evenly the way I like. So far, I have tried a very sharp chef's knife and an alternate method using unwaxed/unflavored dental floss. The floss does an OK job, although it is hard to control for a uniform thin-ness.
