Ceramic Pizza disk for oven?

Some time back there was a discussion about even distribution of the stove oven heat by using a ceramic pizza disk. Well, I ordered one, it has arrived (nice one too). Now my question is, which side do you face up in the oven. I will be using it for only even heat distribution not baking pizza.
It clearly states to use the unfinished side for baking pizza, do I turn the finished side up for even heat distribution or the unfinished side.

Several people gave statements how they used their stone, please refresh my memory as how you use your stone?

Thanks

I would think you want the side down that is normally down if you were using it to bake pizza (unfinished side up). It might be that the unfinished side cannot take the temperature extremes of being close to the heating element (or flame). That is just an educated guess...

I have the same stone in our oven.
IMO, Pizza side up always.
Last thing you need is for that to crack.

Does anyone have a link to the stone you are using? I find the small oven makes a real nice pizza oven, but the one I have at home is round and I think it would cover some of the vent holes in the bottom pan.

I use a round one in mine. It is approx 15" in diameter and fits snug. This is good so it dosen't bounce around when traveling. It works great! Night and day difference in the way the oven works.

Maybe I should clarify------

One side of the pizza stone is unfinished and rough, this is the side that is used to put the pizza on for cooking. The other side is ceramic coated with a design and smooth glazed.

Now I will ask the same question again, does the GLAZED side go up for heat distribution or the rough side?

Mine does not have a glazed side. For clean up it would probably be best to have the glazed side up. Other than that the purpose of the stone is really just helping distribute the heat more evenly so I don't think it would make any difference at all which side was up.
