can i use a ceramic pizza stone in a woodfire?

just posted this in another thread, but afraid it might get lost there so here it...

Does anyone know if it's safe to use a ceramic pizza stone within a campfire?

I made some campfire flatbread pizzas last time I went camping and used a flat rock I found lying around. Built a fire atop the rock. Brushed off after an hour or so, but kept the fire going on the side. Then threw the pizza on the rock and kept turning so that it got heat from both the rock and the fire. Turned out pretty good, but don't know if I'll be able to find a suitable rock everytime I got camping, so a pizza stone seems like a good option.

I was thinking of buying a ceramic pizza stone like this one:

But am not sure if it's ok to use in a woodfire that may reach up to 1100° F.
