Peel, halve and seed squash; cut into 2-inch chunks. Place in a medium pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes, until tender.

Drain well in colander and transfer to a bowl. Mash squash with Mascarpone, salt and pepper; set aside.

Preheat oven to 450°F. Dust a clean work surface with cornmeal and use a rolling pin, or finger tips, to flatten each dough ball into 9-inch rounds.

Place on baking sheets or pizza pans and spread about 3/4 cup squash mixture over top each. Drizzle about 1 teaspoon of oil over each pizza and top with equal amounts of kale, chorizo and cheese.

Bake for about 12 minutes, until edges are lightly browned. Makes 8 servings based on 1/2 pizza per portion.
