Database [Q] How can you keep a blank/empty home screen?

I want to keep the home screen to the immediate right of Google Now completely empty to better see my glorious wallpapers, but I can't figure out how to keep that empty home screens from getting deleted.

You can't have that particular screen be empty without it being your only screen on GEL. You will need to use a different launcher if that is your goal.

How about using desktop visualizer, choosing a random app, and using a blank image. It won't be empty, but it'll look empty.

You can see my blank desktop visualizer here, it does absolutely nothing when clicked.
