    1       pk           Yeast -- Active Dry
    1       t            Sugar
    1 1/2   ts           Salt
    3       c            Unbleached Flour
    1       tb           Shortening
    1       c            Water -- 120 to 130 Degrees
                         F.
    6       ea           Bacon -- Slices, Cut Up
    2       ea           Onions -- Medium, Sliced
      1/4   ts           Cumin
      1/2   ts           Salt
    1       x            Pepper -- As Desired
    1       ea           Egg Yolk
    1       c            Sour Cream
 
   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.
