oh, you certainly can just use the stone without preheating, but think about how it works. If you put raw dough on a cold stone, thenturn on the oven, the bottom of your dough will not cook as fast as the top since the stone has to heat up fisrt. With an already hot stone, your dough cooks from the top AND the bottom, giving you a crisp crust and cooked toppings (with pizza, for example). Try it sometime, see if it makes a difference for you.
