White pizza always refers to the absence of tomato sauce, but it may mean either a pizza with no sauce and white cheese, or one in which a white sauce replaces the tomato sauce. White pizza sauce begins with a basic white sauce made from butter, flour and milk or heavy cream, to which Parmesan cheese, garlic or other seasonings added. A classic Alfredo sauce may also be used as a tasty white sauce for pizza.
