Day 7 Pizza Challenge: Pizza Bianco (White Pizza)

Every pizzeria has their own version of a "Pizza Bianco" and this is mine. My husband had a favorite pizzeria in Charleston when we met and he just loved their white pizza so I learned to make one just for him. This recipe is for 2 white pizzas.
2 pizza doughs
1/2 pound provolone grated or chopped (Or you can omit provolone and use twice as much Parmesan)
1/2 pound mozzarella shredded
Garlic Olive Oil Dip
Garlic Butter Spread 
grated Parmesan (about 1/8-1/4 cup per pizza)
Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 550 and place a stone on bottom if you have one. Spread out both doughs onto parchment that is on a pizza pan or cookie sheet and brush the  garlic olive oil all over or spread the butter on each pizza. Add Parmesan, provolone, and then mozzarella. Drizzle on a little olive oil.
Slide the pizza along with the parchment onto the stone OR place the pan in the oven along with the parchment if you do not have a stone and bake for (1 pizza at a time) 3 minutes, remove parchment by slipping out and then bake the pizza for 7-9 more minutes. it should be golden and crispy!
Add more Parmesan and slice and serve.
