Tony,

I would check the maximum oven temperature at which the pan can be used. Many non-stick coatings can break down and emit potentially noxious fumes when that maximum temperature is breached. Often, such pans are intended to reheat pizza or to bake frozen pizzas, not for prolonged use at high oven temperatures. DKM's recipe calls for an oven temperature of 475 degrees F. The bake time is relatively short so you might be able to get away with using your pan. But I would check just to be sure.

One of our members, Les, once went through the same thing with some coated pizza screens that he had been using and liked because of the coating. When I suggested he check the suitability of the screens at high oven temperature, he checked with the company that made the screens and was effectively told not to use the screens for baking pizzas at the high oven temperatures he was contemplating.
