Pizza Braid

All I can say is YUM!!
 Taylor, Tony and I were craving pizza.
Tony loves it when I make him homemade pepperoni pizza,
so I made my first pizza braid.
It turned out wonderful.
Just what we were craving.

INGREDIENTS:

1 can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated classic pizza crust
3 oz thinly sliced Canadian bacon
10 slices pepperoni
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz) (or more if your like me!)
2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
1egg yolk
1teaspoon water
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
pizza sauce, for dipping
This would be great with tons of vegis!!!!!

DIRECTIONS

1 Heat oven to 400°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Unroll dough on cookie sheet, forming 14x11-inch rectangle.  
2 Top with Canadian bacon, pepperoni, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese lengthwise down center 1/3 of rectangle to within 1/2 inch of short ends..  
3 With pizza cutter or sharp knife, make cuts 1 inch apart on long sides of dough to within 1/2 inch of filling. Alternately cross strips over filling. Fold ends under to seal.  
4 In small bowl, mix egg yolk and water until well blended. Brush over dough; sprinkle with Italian seasonings. 5 Bake 11 to 16 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into crosswise slices. Serve with pizza sauce.
