Provel, St. Louis

This Velveeta-like processed cheese product made with mild cheddar, Swiss, provolone and liquid smoke was first popularized as a pizza topping by Imo’s Pizza, a Missouri-based chain. Today, St. Louis-style pizza is characterized by the use of Provel cheese on crispy, thin-crusted square slices.
