    It's actually fresh mozzarella and anchovies.  Cream cheese is not even - they sell philadelphia cream cheese and try to market it with advertising but it's not an italian thing. 

    The traditional filling i know, whyich you find everywhere, is a piece of mozzarella and an anchovy, battered and fried.
