How does a cast iron pizza pan work? Seems like if you prep pizza on a cast iron that thick it will barely have time to heat before pizza is done
Based on review this is more for grilling than oven use?
Also the ridge surface looks like it could be hard to clean, most other pans are smooth

Generally, when you make a homemade pizza you don't make it on the pan you are cooking it on (it will get stuck).

We do it on a wood cutting board and then transfer it to a pizza stone that's hot (with flour and corn meal covering surfaces between). In this case, you'd transfer it to the hot cast iron I would assume.

A cast iron pizza pan or stone is typically pre-heated with the oven prior to putting the pizza in.

alright that makes sense, I usually make pizza on a thin aluminum pan with holes, I lightly spray oil and flour and it doesn't stick, and I am able to assemble the pizza after spreading dough on the pan

Best way I've found is to put the dough in it cold with some olive oil spread underneath. Let the dough rise for a little bit to get a thicker crust while assembling the pizza. Then heat the skillet on the stove for a few min until you can hear the olive oil sizzling a bit. This will get the pan nice and hot. Then put it in the oven to cook for 10-12 min. If you google recipes for cast iron pizza you'll get plenty of tips.

Works great actually. I was going to buy a pizza stone until I figured out I could do this with my 12" cast iron skillet.

As a side note though, all of this ozark cast iron I've seen in person is garbage. Rough like sandpaper, and hope you don't get one that is miscasted. I won't buy it at any price. Lodge is cheap enough on sale, or find at thrift store. Got my 12" for $4.99.

Ozark cast iron is trash. you can find similar pieces of lodge for $5-10 more at tjmaxx/marshals and it's well worth it. and as much as I love cast iron, it isn't all that great for pizza. a cheap stone works basically as well, and if you're serious about it get a steel

This will be much better and not stick if you pre heat it. High heat is what crisps the bottom.

You add the pan to the oven or grill to preheat it, then you add the already made pizza and slide it on the preheated pan.

It was difficult at first to get the hang of sliding a homemade pizza from one surface to another but, add cornmeal to the bottom surface before stretching dough out on top of the surface and pre make you pie. Slide it onto the hot cast iron pan.

8-10 minutes 500 degrees and it's done!

The round pizza iron also makes a solid non crackable heat deflector for kamados
