2 teaspoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 10-ounce package refrigerated pizza dough

For filling, cook ground beef in a small skillet until brown. Drain off fat.

Stir in taco sauce, chili powder, onion powder, and garlic powder. Set aside.

Unroll pizza dough.

Roll dough into a 14 x 10-1/2-inch rectangle. Cut into twelve 3-1/2-inch squares.

Divide filling among dough squares.

Sprinkle with cheese.

Brush edges with water.

Lift one corner of each square and stretch dough to the opposite corner, making a triangle.

Press edges well with a fork to seal.

Arrange on a greased baking sheet.

Prick with fork.

Combine egg and the 1 teaspoon water; brush onto turnovers.

Bake in a 425 degree F. oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden.

Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
