Heat oven to 425° F. To make crust, combine flour and salt in a food processor or mixing bowl. Add butter and process or combine with a fork until small particles are formed. Add Parmesan cheese and process briefly to combine. Add cold water and mix to form dough ball. Roll ball into 12-inch circle. Transfer to tart pan or quiche pan.

Reduce oven to 350° F.
For filling, spread smoked salmon over crust. Cut cream cheese into bits and scatter over salmon. Sprinkle with Swiss cheese and Asiago cheese.
