St. Louis has a deep food history, and pizza is a strong one.
Our pizza’s are different than anywhere else.
According to St. Louis (and wikipedia):
The definitive characteristics of a St. Louis-style pizza are a very thin crust made without yeast, the common (but not mandatory) use of Provel processed cheese, and pizzas cut into squares or rectangles instead of wedges.
Since thin crust was a must, I chose lasagna noodles for this recipe rather than looking for another type of noodle that might add too much weight.
The lasagna noodle holds everything together and makes this dish incredibly easy to serve.
I used Provel cheese because it’s a St. Louis staple sold at every store around here, but you can substitute with a combination of shredded provolone, shredded swiss and shredded white cheddar.
That’s pretty much what Provel cheese consists of.
And if you should not want to go to all that trouble, shredded Provolone cheese work’s just fine on it’s own and it’s just as good.
(Yes we tested all three ways just to be sure).
