Inside turned white

I did a pizza last night at 650 and today the inside looks chalky. Has this happened to anyone else?

    All you did was burn off the build up inside. No harm and you will see some people will intentionally do "clean" burns

    The black stuff is creosote.  You burnt it off and it left white ash.

    I typically finish off my pizza cook with a clean burn...all the lump and everything go.  Clean out the ash afterwards.
