I have composted lots of it. I would pile it face down, water and then cover with a black tarp so the roots would not restart. You can also plant in it upside down like Dave just said, just expect some active weeding...
It should be ready for next year if you don't put brown matter in between the sod pieces, sooner if you mix dry carbon matter in it

I compost sod all the time! After I've removed it, by sticking it at the bottom of a hole, by covering it with dirt and compost (lasagna style) or just by turning it over in a pile and then covering with black plastic.
Hope that helps!
