Thinly slice acorn squash; arrange evenly over crust. Brush squash with olive oil; spoon mushrooms over squash. Sprinkle with smoked Gouda and chopped fresh sage. Bake 10 minutes or until top is golden brown and squash is tender. Cut into 8 slices; serve.

Baked to Perfection: To make our pizza, we used Fabulous Flats for the crust and baked it in a 500° oven on the bottom rack to make it crispy.
