ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- Provel cheese is unique to St. Louis. It’s gooey, melty and completely different from other cheeses out there.

The St. Louis staple got its start back in the 1950s. when a local grocery store got together with a Wisconsin dairy company to make a specific cheese for pizza. It was meant for a thin crust pizza and was a light product.

Provel is a mix of swiss, cheddar and provolone. Millions of pounds are sold each year.
