Provolone?
« on: March 10, 2016, 09:59:25 AM »
I was talking to our church's Italian chef, Vito, last night, and he suggested I cook a provolone and prosciutto pizza. (And when I say Italian, I mean he was born there.) Well I got to thinking and remembered that Pizza Hut made one twenty something years ago while I was in college in southern IL. I remember it being square, delicious, and that Pizza Hut quit making it.

Now I know that it's often used in a pizza blend of cheeses, but has anyone used provolone, being the main cheese?

Nope, but I have eaten them.  I like doing white pizzas when adding proscuitto.  EVOO for the sauce, fresh mozzarella (I usually slice thing, then tear into smaller peices, ricotta, mined garlic.  Cook the pizza.  Toss arugula with a little bit of EVOO and some fresh lemon juice, add prosciutto then the arugula mix.  Awesome!!!  I'm sure provolone would be amazing as well.

Sounds like it's time to make dough again! Thanks.

Go for it. Having wrapped asparagus in Provolone and Prosciutto I know the combo is a natural. 

I have used Provolone as well as Friulano and Fontina to augment good Mozzarella....usually 50/50 or thereabouts. Provolone and Friulano are roughly equal is similarity to Mozzarella so neither would be significantly different in taste/look.

That's all the further encouragement I need. And I really need to just have our Italian friend over to help. We're so blessed to have him cook for our Wednesday night fellowship suppers.

Thanks, man!

Grated provolone and mozzarella, prosciutto, black olives and red onion. It was mighty tasty.
