Breakfast Braid

I originally wanted to make this recipe for my playgroup, but I chickened out at the last moment and made Sausage Swirls instead. I should have gone for it, it was amazingly easy to make and turned out beautifully. I adapted it from a Cooking Light recipe, making it un-light.  C said that it needed more cheese, I wonder how he would have felt about the Cooking Light version?
Breakfast Braid
6 servings

1 (13.8-ounce) can thin crust refrigerated pizza crust dough
Cooking spray
2 tablespoons frozen chopped onion and bell pepper mix
8 ounces breakfast sausage
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Preheat oven to 425°. Unroll dough onto a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; pat into a 17 x 12–inch rectangle (size of the baking sheet).

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sausage; cook 9 minutes or until lightly browned. Stir in eggs; cook 1 1/2 minutes or until set. Remove from heat.

Sprinkle ½ cup Monterey Jack lengthwise down center of dough, leaving about a 2 1/2-inch border on each side. Spoon egg mixture evenly over cheese. Sprinkle remaining cheese over egg mixture.

Make 2-inch-long diagonal cuts about 1 inch apart on both sides of dough to within 1/2 inch of filling using a sharp knife or kitchen shears. Arrange strips over filling, alternating strips diagonally over filling. Press ends under to seal. Brush with egg white. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut crosswise into slices.
