shehakol is indicated here http://westmountshul.com/documents/Review%20Sheet%2014.pdf (example 11)
on the hashakafa.com thread (http://www.hashkafah.com/index.php?/topic/25916-bracha-for-cheesecake/) the OU opinion is quoted. It seems to say that for a thin-dough crust, shehakol is appropriate.
Cheese Cake Mezonot As with all cakes, the dough is considered the primary ingredient and only Mezonot is necessary (Mishnah Berurah 212:1), even if there is less dough than cheese, and even if the cake is eaten mainly because of the cheese. On the other hand, if there is merely a thin strip of dough, which is intended just to help you handle all the cheese, the dough becomes subordinate to the cheese and only Shehakol need be said.
