You will need a thick pizza stone. Pampered Chef are renowned to break and shatter in the egg. Any BGE, Primo, Vision, Old Stone, Ceramic Grill Store, etc will work good for a pizza stone.
I find the best way to cook pizza with a plate setter is legs down with a small air gap between the the plate setter and the pizza stone. (You don't want to put the pizza stone on top of the plate setter since your crust will burn way before your top ever has a chance to finish up. That air gap is important) The air space between the plate setter can be done with old egg feet, stainless nuts, crushed beer cans, foil balls, or anything that is grill safe that will raise it.
You can also go with the plate setter legs up with the pizza stone resting on the grid. I've done it this way a few times but I find the crust to be better and more evenly cooked when you have a small air gap between the plate setter and pizza stone. (Just my personal opinion)
You can also cook pizza with the Adjustable Rig if you decide to skip the plate setter all together. (From Ceramic Grill Store/Also BGE owner)
I'd recommend starting out with something super simple. Get to know the grill without worrying too much about the food at first. Chicken is a great first cook. It will take a little time to get the hang of the temperature of the egg. Keep plugging away and cooking and the temperature thing will become 2nd nature.
