    Unroll dough on cookie sheet. Starting at center, press dough to 14x10-inch rectangle; cut into 4 (7x5-inch) rectangles. Spoon 1 slightly heaping tablespoon pizza sauce onto each rectangle to within 1/2 inch of edge. Top half of each rectangle with sausage mixture and cheese, spreading to within 1/2 inch of edge. Fold dough in half over filling; press edges firmly with fork to seal. Brush with egg.
