Default Mozzarella or Provolone

I am contemplating putting some melted cheese on bread with marinara for lunch and can't decide.

I like mozza in cooked pasta. It can be so ooey-gooey though. Not always a great thing. YOu know the string of melty cheese needs to break at some point. When I was a kid a pizza place that went out of business btw served pizza that, when you took a first bite the entire toppings came off with it. Everytime every slice.

Provolone has a good cheesy fragrance. It reminds me of the French saying that cheese smells like angels' feet.

Which do you prefer, if you have a preference, and why?

I love them both, and they're so different and great for different things, and since fresh mozzarella is so different than bagged I almost consider it a different cheese. Fresh mozzarella shines in Insalata Caprese imo, and bagged mozzarella is good for being melted on things. Genoa salami wants provolone. Antipasti also is great with provolone.

cant decide. i mean true pizza does not have only 1 kind of cheese--unless you are talking about pizza a piatto, which is mozzarella di buffalo.

I love both. On my pizza I only use fresh tomato sauce and lots of locatelli cheese and fresh basil. If I have fresh mozzarella (not the chewy bag stuff) I will put thin slices on it too. I would never order extra cheese if I'm eating it out. Much to much and overpowering with cheese, IMO.
My favorite provolone cheese is the real strong provolone. I think you have to acquire a taste~smell for it.D

In my area it's common for delis/sandwich shops to put sauce/mozzarella on a sub roll, bake and call it a pizza sandwich. A little added provolone could only be a +

I'd choose mozzarella if only one, or both.
