  6. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a 6-inch round cake pan with 3-inch sides with.  Once the dough has risen for 45 minutes, Carefully lift dough and place into pan.  Drizzle with a bit more olive oil and make dimples into the dough with your fingers.
  7. Arrange roasted squash, pumpkin seeds and sage on top of the dough.
