Are there metallic off-flavors from a pizza steel?

Last night's pizza, cooked on a well-seasoned slab of steel, tasted to my wife like metal. The topping had tomato, onion and cheese and the steel was hot enough to char the underside. There was a bit of a strange flavor, not metallic exactly, but not bad. Has anyone else noticed off-flavors from a pizza steel?
