Can you put a frozen pizza directly on the oven rack?
Putting it directly on the rack allows the frozen pizza to get a nice crust on the bottom, before it gets soft, and that keeps it nice and flat even though there is plenty of space between the rack bars.
If you cook it on a metal sheet (aluminum foil or a cookie sheet) you will have a much softer pizza bottom.5 Dec 2018

What temperature do you cook homemade pizza on?
Preheat the oven between 450 and 500 degrees F (250 to 260 degrees C) — the stone needs heat up while the oven heats. Large, thick-crusted pizzas might need an oven temperature closer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) so the crust can cook completely before the toppings burn.
What does a pizza stone do?
Compared to the metal of a baking sheet, the ceramic material of a pizza stone holds heat more evenly, and the porous surface draws water out of particularly wet areas of the dough as it cooks. Plus, when you preheat the stone, it gives the dough a strong burst of initial heat, puffing up the crust.
