Removing shed foundation

Hi. I hope you will forgive my ignorance since I am a new homeowner. The place i just bought has a shed foundation on a side yard, but it is not needed since there are already two sheds on the property. The previous owner started the shed project, but never actually built it. I want to remove it to make room for a dog run on the side yard.

It is concrete pillars with metal posts and 2x4 with plywood on top. I was able to remove about half of the screws holding down the plywood, but the rest of the screws are not moving. I am thinking that the next step is to get in there with a prybar and start pulling it apart. I would also need to dig out the cement footers after all the wood is off.

Is this the correct approach?

Removing shed foundation

Sometimes you can use a sawzall (reciprocating saw) and circular saw and cut things apart
