As per  the title,  I  have no stone or metal sheet  and cook in a domestic oven. I was thinking of 1 of 2 options...

1. Heat one of my cast iron  frying  pans in the oven with the oven on max and for at least  1 hr. Then once ready pull the pan out (it'll be very hot now) and quickly assemble the pizza  in this hot pan.

2. Or...place a number of my empty  cast fry pans in the oven  in place of a stone  and assume they will retain and transmit heat.

You don't need a stone. It's just nice to have one.
You'll just have to work on time and temperature to make sure your pizza bakes all the way through and the bottom crust comes out way you want it.  :) :chef:

I have made a couple styles in cast iron. Rather than work with a screaming hot pan, I prefer to press the dough out in a room temperature pan, then assemble the pizza. Before putting it into my preheated oven, I put the cast iron pan on a large burner on my gas stove for about 90 seconds. After baking the pizza until you are satisfied with the appearance of the top, lift the pizza up with a small metal spatula, knife, or fork. If it needs more browning, put it back on your stove’s burner.
