    Love white pizza! This one looks SO good! Funny (quick) story, my girlfriends (who don’t cook often) had NO idea you actually have to HEAT the pizza stone before you put the pizza on it, when I mentioned it briefly, they looked at me blankly like I was talking a foreign language. Minds were blown. Haha

      Hahaha I love stories like that because it reminds me to be as clear and specific as possible in recipe directions – this stuff isn’t common knowledge to many people!!

    This looks fantastic! I actually haven’t made a white pizza before, but if you say cheese (especially smoked!) and bacon, I am in! I also love the idea of the arugala on top…I can pretend I am eating a salad 😉 Love this!
