Provolone

It's a spinning dough cheese, original from the south of Italy and its name refers to a local spherical cheese that in the past was called Prova. In this area (Río de la Plata) it's also known as Parrillero Cheese because of its common use at the parrilla (barbecue) together with meat. Its classical shape is cylindrical, with no holes and semi-soft dough. It's also used in slices for sandwiches and cold meat. Due to its melting point conditions it's excellent for meals, especially on the pizza.
