Preparation

Place squash, cut side down, on small foil-lined pan; add 1/4 inch (5 mm) water to pan. Bake in bottom third of 375°F (190°C) oven for about 30 minutes or until tender. Let cool; peel and cut into bite-size cubes. (You should have 2 cups/500 mL.)

Meanwhile, in large heavy skillet, melt butter over medium heat; cook onion, stirring often, for about 8 minutes or until softened. Add sliced mushrooms, thyme, sage, salt and pepper; cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes or until mushrooms are softened and liquid is evaporated. Remove from heat; stir in stock. Add cubed squash, tossing gently to combine.

Place pizza base on 12-inch (30 cm) round pizza pan; spoon mushroom mixture on top. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake in bottom third of 500°F (260°C) oven for about 10 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and crust is golden and slightly puffed.
