I don't have a pizza stone, and I make mine on the Webber 22 inch charcoal kettle grill. I make a solid bed of coals, and let them get screaming hot while I put my pizza together. To assemble the pizza, I put enough olive oil into my 12" Cast Iron pan to pool, just a little in the pan center. I press my pizza crust into the pan and place the sauce and toppings on it. Let it rise for 15 minutes and put it on the grill. Cover and let it cook with all vents completely open. The light smoke from the charcoal (sometimes I'll throw just a bit of mesquite onto the charcoal) really makes the pizza come out amazing.
I believe that it is the smoke and slight charring that makes pizza come out great from a fire heated brick oven. I can duplicate that in the Webber Kettle. Good stuff.
The moral to the story is that though a pizza stone can be a good thing, if you don't have one, don't despair. Simply break out the cast iron.
