We’re glad you asked. Authentic St. Louis-style pizza is a thin, cracker-crust covered in edge-to-edge toppings then layered with its key ingredient, Provel® cheese.
What’s the Deal with Provel®?
Cheddar, Swiss, and Provolone combined into one gooey, creamy, deliciously cheesy experience. Provel was originally invented in St. Louis, back in 1947. Its origins are debated; however, it’s theorized it was a convergence of Old World Italian traditions and New World technology. Wherever its roots, it is now deeply ingrained into St. Louis’ culinary identity.
- Invented in St. Louis, Missouri in 1947
- More than 2 million pounds are consumed each year
- Comprised of a blended trio of Cheddar + Swiss + Provolone
- A low melting point allows it to melt without being stringy

For customers to experience a genuine, original St. Louis-style pizza of the highest quality, served in a pleasant atmosphere or at home, so that they too will have reason to say: “Imo’s is my favorite pizza place.”
