It’s entertaining to convert existing recipes into a pizza. You may already know the pizza burger or the pizza muffin. We made a pizza quiche. A quiche from the skillet with lots of cheese, tomato and salami. This is a basic recipe that you can use in many ways.
This is a one-pan or one-skillet recipe, which saves you a lot of washing up at the end. This is a skillet with a diameter of 30 cm. If you want to make a larger or smaller quiche, you should use a larger or smaller skillet.
We throw the tomatoes into the skillet first until they get a bit darker, and then we add the cubes of salami. We bake everything until the tomatoes burst and the salami cubes have become a bit drier.
In the fat from the salami, we make scrambled eggs. The trick to a good scrambled egg is mixing the egg with milk. Let it sit over low heat until you can flip it in large pieces. Then you let it solidify again until you can do it again. You stop when you no longer see liquid egg wash, but you don’t let it cook dry. Good scrambled eggs are fluffy and a bit moist. Keep in mind that the cast iron skillet is still hot for a while so that the egg continues to bake.
When the skillet has cooled enough to handle, you can wipe the last bit of egg out of the pan with a cloth. That only works if your pan is well coated and nice and smooth. If this is not the case, here are some handy tips on how to make your skillet non-stick.
We use ready-made quiche dough for this quiche that you buy as a roll. We had made our own quiche dough before, which was doable, but it took much longer to make. Try to place the dough in the skillet without air bubbles. If you accidentally press a hole in the dough, tape it up with the leftovers.
In the list of ingredients, we mention dry mozzarella. That is different mozzarella than the bags at the supermarket. But it is certainly not pre-grated mozzarella because that is certainly dry. It is the mozzarella you buy as a block before it is grated. Your cheesemonger can help you with this.
This is the setup in our kamado that we use to bake pies, pizzas, and a quiche. We place the accessory rack in the highest position in the divide and conquer system, and on top of that, our plate setter with three corner pieces. Then we put a pizza stone on it. This way, we have an indirect preparation without worrying that the bottom of the quiche will get too hot and burn.
Because the quiche is now placed high in the lid, the reflected heat from the lid will ensure that the quiche is well cooked from above.
After half an hour, the quiche is ready, and you can see that the Parmesan cheese has also become nicely crispy brown. Before you try to remove the quiche from the skillet, you will have to let it cool down completely. The content of cheese and egg is still soft, and the quiche would break apart if there is no longer any support from the skillet.
This is our pizza quiche. Let us know if you will make it in the comments below. Or better! Take a photo and post it on Instagram. Tag @bbq.heroes so we can see what you made.
- 5 eggs
- 60 ml whole milk
- Black pepper
- 150 grams salami sausage
- 10 cherry tomatoes
- 250 grams dry mozzarella
- 1 tbsp butter
- 230 grams ready-made quiche dough
- 100 grams Parmesan cheese
- Place a pan on the stove and fry the tomatoes until they are soft but just not bursting. Cut the salami into small cubes and stir-fry them briefly until they are a little crispier.
- Beat the eggs together with the milk and a little black pepper until smooth. Wipe the pan clean and melt a little butter in it.
- Stir-fry the egg until just solidified but still soft and moist.
- Remove the skillet from the heat and scoop the egg into a bowl with the salami and tomatoes. Grate the mozzarella and mix it in as well.
- Clean the pan again and grease it with butter. Spread the quiche dough in the pan and cut off the leftovers around the skillet. Poke holes in the bottom with a fork.
- Spoon everything on the quiche form and grate over the Parmesan cheese.
- Prepare a barbecue with an indirect temperature of about 200ºC (392F) and bake the quiche for about half an hour until the dough is brown.
- Let the quiche cool down before you remove it from the skillet.
