  2. mix the olives, anchovy, tomato paste with lemon juice and zest in a bowl and season well with salt and pepper

  3. with a knife or spatula, spread the cream cheese on the pastry, followed by the tomato paste mixture to cover the entire surface evenly

  4. next, roll the whole thing up like a swiss rolland cut into 2 inch slices
