Filling: In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook carrot, zucchini, basil, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. Add Ground Beef and Sausage Mix and chili sauce; cook, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes or until liquid is evaporated.

Sprinkle cornmeal onto greased large rimmed baking sheet; set aside. On lightly floured surface, roll out pizza dough into 15- x 10-inch (40 x 25 cm) rectangle; transfer to baking sheet. Sprinkle cheese in 4-inch (10 cm) wide strip lengthwise down centre of dough. Spoon meat mixture over cheese.

Using sharp knife and starting at 1 corner of dough, make 10 cuts diagonally to form strips about 1-1/2 inches (4 cm) apart, stopping about 1/2 inch (1 cm) before filling. Repeat with other side, starting at corner across from initial starting point. Brush strips with some of the egg. Fold strips over filling, alternating from side to side to create braid. Brush top with remaining egg.

Bake in centre of 425ºF (220ºC) oven for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 400ºF (200ºC); cook for 15 minutes longer or until golden.
