I would check out some local pottery & ceramic supply stores that carry high-temp kiln shelves at least 15mm thick. 25 mm is even better. Those shelves make excellent pizza stones; much better than those flimsy pizza "stones" department stores carry.

If you can't find genuine Baking Steels or something similar, a couple good pieces of mild steel 6-8mm thick will do the trick. No need to get all the mill scale (hard, gray coating) off. Just be sure to clean them several times with soap and water the apply a light coat of vegetable shortening and bake them for an hour or so to season them. If you can get the Baaking Steel though it saves a lot of effort.

Oh, I'm sure you've already heard this, but I'll say it anyway.
If you 'make' your own stone, but sure to get tiles or stones that do NOT
have any varnish or glaze on them.
