Can you cook 2 pizzas at one time on a large egg?

Is it possible to cook 2 pizzas at the same time on a large egg using a grill extender? The pizza stone for the large egg is only 14" diameter. With three teenagers, that's a little small. It would be nice to cook two 14" pizzas at the same time. I know this doesn't really work in a conventional oven, but I'm thinking I may be able to get away with it in an egg since it's more like a convection oven. Has anyone done this before?

Also, does anyone know the difference between the pizza stone from BGE and a Pampered Chef pizza stone? They look similar. Will my Pampered Chef stone work on an egg?

    Some pizza stone are made for high heat for use like BBQ's and others are not which can chatter on high temp cook.

    I've never seen a set up that allows two pizzas to cook properly. You really need the radiant heat completely around the pizza to cook properly. Stacking two would keep this from happening. Cook at 500 and most are done in 8 minutes (the time it takes to make the next one up and get it ready!)

    As for the stone - post after post with pics show the P/C stone cracked when used on BGE. Buy the BGE one, it can handle the temps.

    Thanks for the information Kent. That's what I thought, but it's nice to hear from someone with experience.
