  4. Bake in centre of oven for 15 minutes or until bread is golden. Sprinkle with chives.

Although i did like this recipe, it was way too salty for us. I didn't add the extra salt so maybe i'll have to try it again using "spek" instead of bacon, and less of it. Thanks anyway for a good idea using the dough and sour cream.

Excellent! Made my own dough and made as posted and wouldn't change a thing. Loved the topping - the chopped chives fresh from the garden a perfect garnish. Definitely a repeatable!

This was amazing. I used Rhoads pizza dough and garnished with green onions. I was a little worried about the sour cream but it was so wonderful with the cheese and onions. The flavors were a perfect balance. I made this for ZWT 4 and it will be in regular rotation.
