Anchobvy and Cream cheese Slices

This bread was made for my friend's birthday drink.
I got invitation on that day. All the ingredients are left over in the fridge. I checked the fridge, then I found Anchovy and cream cheese. Of cause, I have flour all the time.

At first, I made mixture of cream cheese and anchovy, seasoned with pepper. It was salty enough by anchovy. Apply it on the dough. Sprinkle onion slices.
I didn't proof it before put it in the oven and bake. Because I wanted to make it thin and crispy crust.

It was delicious!! Creamy and salty, but not too fishy. Onion texture is matching with cream cheese. Cut it into slices, and bring them party. That is suitable with wine and beer.
