Think microscopically, it isn't like water pools and sinks in but yes, the difference is the water molecules vibrate between the pizza base and metal and they don't on stone...or in real pizza ovens.
That's what the food scientists tell us.

Pizza is great either way, this isn't about being wrong to use metal, just what is the best choice when choosing for the OP.

Born and raised in Chicago, not sure if you want an thin or pan style. This pan is the bomb for making a stuffed Za.

I have a cast iron one, like that picture above and use it for manner of things. Works great

I use a BGE stone on a KJ heat deflector in my Vision kamado. Works like a charm for crispy crust. The stone is half inch thick or so, nice and heavy.

I have both and think they both work grat.

I do find the stone is easier to work with when cooking one Pizza after another.

I prefer my Lodge CI pizza pan over a stone. Crust comes out perfect every time.

Also, the CI pan can be used for other applications, fajitas, flat top burgers etc. Well worth the money.

Since I have never tried a CI dish for pizza I will speak only to the stone type. I have been making Pizza on a WFO for a while. The porous nature of stone tends to wick out the liquids and IMHO will result in a crispier final product. I use a piece of natural granite that was left over from some projects around the house. I use the un-polished side and preheat the stone in my convection oven while I bring my Vision Kamado up to the highest temperature I can muster. 700 degrees +. The key in getting a good spring in the crust, is to get the dome of the cooker equal to the temp of the stone or greater. I make Neapolitan style pizzas. No greater than 10" in circumference, sparse sauce, the best cheese I can find and one or two toppings. Fresh Mozzarella can be a challenge on a thin crust pizza because the cheese will implode it's oil and blow a hole through the crust. Flour on your stone is you enemy as it will burn quickly. Use a peel that is perforated so that the flour can be shaken off prior to loading the pie on the cooker. The true art of pizza is baking and broiling at equal temps. master that my friend and you are a Pizziaola on any type of cooker!

I prefer the stone, but I haven't done any pan za's, only thin crust style.
I put legs down on the placesetter, put the stone right on top of the setter, and I've cooked za from 450 to 700 degrees. NO issues.

Now, I don't take the stone off or move it until it's 100% cooled off (next day...lol) and I use a steel pizza peel and parchment paper...
