That brings England close to qualifying ahead of their game with Northern Ireland in Belfast on Tuesday.
England scored first through Arsenal striker Mead, who grabbed two goals in both the first and second halves.
The last time England played North Macedonia they beat the hosts 8-0 back in September, and are yet to concede a goal under new manager Sarina Wiegman in World Cup qualifying.
“An opponent that compared to us isn’t great but we have to make the game," Wiegman told ITV Sport. "We have to speed up the game. That’s what we tried to do. We scored 10 goals which is nice.
“It’s hard. We created lots of chances and sometimes we should have been more patient.”
On her 50th goal for her country, White said: "I think it’s pleasing to score.
"It’s a massive privilege [to be among Harry Kane and Wayne Rooney]. It’s a dream for me to play for England.
"For me it’s any way I can contribute to the team.
"It’s an incredible feeling to be among those amazing players.”
