Intense flavor sensation, WOW! I also cannot buy Provel rope cheese locally, but saw Recipe#382006 and then elsewhere on the web people did without the Liquid Smoke by using smoked provolone. I took the "gourmet" tack shredding Cabot 3-year (white) cheddar, Applewood-smoked swiss, and imported smoked provolone in a 2:1:1 ratio. I used a personal pizza-sized pizza crust and did without the 4 minute baking as the crust had been prebrowned. Following the lead of my favorite local Italian restaurant, I glazed olive oil on the crust before spreading the pizza sauce. Can't wait to make this again, but sliding some sliced mushrooms under the cheese as well. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
