There have been a number of gluten-free threads. Also a number of websites for that topic.

One alternative is to eliminate the crust, just make the custard, maybe with a sprinkle of expresso crystals on top. If you want a good crust, look through GF tart recipes on food52 -- There are many gifted GF bakers on this site.
