As usual a little introduction about the food that I am going to cook.
Hmmm... What exactly is a white pizza? 
Is it a must to have white sauce (roux made from butter and flour) as the toppings? 
Even I myself wasn't sure about the real definition of it either..
So I did some extensive research on the variations.
And I found out that the only difference between a red and a white pizza is white doesn't use tomato sauce.
A white pizza can be made simply from only just cheese and herbs. 

Anyway without further ado
Lets start me cooking show! Popeye is hungry!

Additional info.. Do you really need a pizza stone to make a great pizza?
The answer is no. I just lay a sheet of aluminium foil on top of my baking rack with my pizza on it.
