Two ways of doing this:

  1. Use that sphere for knife project tool

    • Cut the sphere in half in Edit Mode
    • Choose Top View
    • In Object mode select your sphere, and then select the pane
    • Go into Edit Mode and Knife Project
  2. Collapse the sphere

    • Cut the sphere in half in Edit Mode
    • Select all vertices
    • Scale it along the Z axis to 0 (On a keyboard: S + Z + 0)

I am quite new to Blender myself, but in my experience, these are the two easy ways of achieving it.
