Pizza in a #14 skillet?
Should I preheat my #14 before putting it into a 450F preheated oven for making pizza?

Re: Pizza in a #14 skillet?
Depends on a few questions. Are you using raw dough for the crust? Will you be constructing the pizza in the pan? A preheated pan may make for difficult handling. But it may contribute to a crisper crust. Pan style pizzas are usually made in thin metal pans that don't require pre-heating.

I would construct the pizza in the pan with homemade no knead dough

Seems a little dicey to try to make the pie in a preheated pan. If the question is, is there any harm in putting the room temp pan straight into the 450 oven, I don't think there should be a problem.

I have to agree.....shouldnt cause any problems. Putting it in an oven is probably safer than on an open fire, or what not. Youll be fine! Welcome to the collectors of BIG Cast Iron.
