Doubtful any of our ovens go up to the 700-800 degrees that pizzeria ovens do and many of us don't have a pizza stone...

I haven't and wouldn't try with a kitchen oven, but I have been able to get a fairly inexpensive Fiesta gas grill with cast aluminum firebox to bake at over 700 degrees F. Doing so was actually pretty easy and inexpensive.

What I did was replace the sheet metal with a "lava rock grate" of the appropriate size and topped it with Grill Greats Ceramic Grill Tiles, instead of lava rocks: When I fired it up, it shattered the 500-550 degree F thermometer mounted in the lid. I replaced that with a candy thermometer, fired it up again and it registered over 750 degrees F.

A King Arthur Flour brand stone over some quarry tiles seems to work ok to bake on.
