  • 3 cups White Lily® Enriched Bleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried whole Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter
  • 6 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 to 2/3 cups ice-cold water


  • 36 slices pepperoni
  • 1/2 pound Italian sausage, cooked, well drained and crumbled
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese


  • 2 (8 oz.) cans tomato sauce
  • 1 large tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried whole Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. HEAT oven to 400°F. Combine flour, Italian seasoning and salt in large bowl. Cut in butter and cream cheese with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add water, a little at a time, until mixture is moistened.
  2. TURN dough onto lightly floured surface. Flatten and roll into 18 x 12-inch rectangle. Cut into six 6-inch squares.
  3. LAYER pepperoni, sausage, green pepper, onion, mushrooms and cheese slightly to one side of center of each pastry square, dividing ingredients evenly among squares.
  4. MOISTEN edges of pastry; fold unfilled side of pastry over filling to form a triangle. Seal edges with fork. Cut slits in pastry to vent steam. Place on ungreased baking sheet.
  5. BAKE 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Make sauce while turnovers are baking.
  6. COMBINE tomato sauce, chopped tomato, parsley, sugar, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and cayenne pepper in small saucepan.
  7. COOK over medium heat 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve with turnovers.
