1) Preheat the griddle.
2) Rub the pieces of provolone all over with the olive oil and season with the rest of the ingredients. Let marinate refrigerated for 1 hour.
3) Griddle the cheese over moderately-high heat for about 2 minutes per side until griddle marks appear and the cheese just begins to soften.
4) Transfer the cheese to a metal plate or baking dish on top of the griddle. Cook until the cheese just barely starts to melt and begins to brown on the bottom, about 3 to 5 minutes.
5) Serve hot with crusty bread or grilled bread slices.
