  • 1 package Fully Cooked Original Pork Sausage Crumbles

  • ½ cup chopped red bell pepper

  • 5 eggs, divided

  • 1 package (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza dough

  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Cook and stir sausage and bell pepper in large skillet over MEDIUM heat 4-5 minutes or until peppers are tender.

  2. Add 4 of the eggs to sausage mixture. Cook stirring occasionally 4-5 minutes or until no liquid egg remains.

  3. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray. Unroll pizza dough onto baking sheet into large rectangle (about 10x12-inches). Spoon the sausage-egg mixture down center of dough. Sprinkle with cheese and green onion.

  4. Use a sharp knife to make 7 diagonal cuts in exposed pastry on each side of filling, stopping ½ inch from filling. Fold strips over filling, alternating sides until filling is enclosed.

  5. Beat remaining egg with 2 teaspoons water. Brush dough with egg.

  6. Bake 20-25 minutes or until braid is golden brown. Cut into 6 slices to serve.
