Yes, it has crossed my mind. I can only assume once an oil is properly baked on then its smoke point might be altered? real pizza is baked on steel pans( the kind that require seasoning with oil ) at 300C with no burnt taste.

Nearly every guide I've read on different pizza geek forums say the oil should be burnt off as part of the seasoning process. The temps vary depending on who you ask: 200-300C. Apparently, the process is complete when there is no more smoke.
