    1      package       Yeast -- Active Dry
    2                    Onions; Medium -- Sliced
    1      teaspoon      Sugar
      1/4  teaspoon      Cumin
    1 1/2  teaspoon      Salt
      1/2  teaspoon      Salt
    3      cup           Unbleached Flour
                         Pepper -- As Desired
    1      tablespoon    Shortening
    1                    Egg Yolk
    1      cup           Water -- 120 to 130 Degrees F
    1      cup           Sour Cream
    6                    Bacon; Slices -- Cut Up
 
 Mix yeast, sugar, 1 t salt, and 1/2 cup flour.	Blend in shortening and warm
water.	Beat for 2 minutes. Add enough flour to make a soft dough.
 Knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place dough in a lightly
greased bowl.  Cover and let dough rise in a warm place 1/2 hour.
 Pat dough into a lightly greased 12-inch pizza pan or onto a lightly greased
baking sheet.  Press up edges to make a slight rim. Fry bacon until crisp. 
Remove from grease and drain on absorbent paper. Add onions to bacon grease; cook
slowly until tender but not brown. Sprinkle onion, bacon, cumin, 1/2 t salt and
pepper over dough. Bake at 400 Degrees F. for 20 minutes.  Blend egg yolk and
sour cream. Pour over onions. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes longer or until golden
brown and sour cream is set. Serve warm or at room temperature.
