Tips for Making a Gluten-Free Pie Crust
This recipe uses my favorite gluten-free pie crust! It uses my trusted blend of almond flour and tapioca flour and it’s made quickly in the food processor. Here are some tips on making this pie crust!
- Get all of the ingredients prepared before you begin: Measure out the dry ingredients, cut the butter and make sure it is chilled and crack the egg with the honey in a bowl.
- Don’t over-process the dough: Once it has come together stop running the food processor.
- Wrap it up! Wrap the dough tightly in plastic wrap after it is made.
- Let it chill! This dough needs to firm up before you can roll it. Let it rest at least 2 hours before rolling it out. It can be made up to 2 days ahead of time.

How to Serve It
A quiche is best served warm or at room temperature. I love this quiche served with sliced avocado and a side salad.
Can You Freeze Quiche?
Yes! This quiche can be frozen for up to 2 – 3 months. To freeze, let fully cool first. You can (optionally) initially freeze on a sheet tray, so it is frozen flat, and then wrap in plastic wrap twice. When ready to serve, let it slowly defrost in the refrigerator for 12-24 hours. Then slowly reheat in a 300-degree oven until heated through.
Want to Make it Without a Crust?
You can absolutely make this a crustless spring veggie pie, also known as a frittata! Basically you could follow all the steps with the exception of making the pie crust! That too can be frozen. Check out the above guidance for freezing instructions.

Gluten Free Spring Quiche
For Pie Crust:
- 1 cup 98g almond flour
- 1 cup 120g tapioca flour / starch
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter cold, cut into cubes
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon honey
For Spring Veggie Filling:
- 1 small bunch about 1 lb. asparagus, ends trimmed (see note)
- 4-6 small yellow potatoes about 12 ounces, thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil divided
- 1 teaspoon salt divided
- ½ teaspoon black pepper divided
- 1 small onion diced
- 1 small leek or about 1 cup diced leeks
- 2-3 pieces swiss chard center ribs removed, sliced and divided and the leaves thinly sliced
- 1 garlic clove minced
- ⅓ cup thinly sliced chives
- 8 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Prepare Pie Crust:
- In a food processor combine almond flour, tapioca flour, salt and cold butter and pulse until the butter is broken down into pea-sized pieces.
- Add in egg and honey and process until the dough comes together around the blade.
- Shape dough into a round disk, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and transfer to the refrigerator until cold, at least 2 hours or overnight.
- Between two sheets of parchment or plastic wrap, or on a tapioca floured work surface, roll out dough to fit the size of a 9 inch pie tin, about a 12 inch circle. Removing one sheet of parchment and invert the pie dough into your tin. Crimp the edges as desired. Store the pie dough in the refrigerator while you make the filling.
Make the Filling:
- Pre-heat the oven to 400°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment.
- Place half of the asparagus on the sheet pan. Cut the other half into 1” pieces and place on the roasting pan, along with sliced potatoes. Drizzle with 2 teaspoons olive oil, and ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon of black pepper and toss together. Spread out into an even layer. Roast in the oven for 10-15 minutes, flipping the potatoes halfway through until the veggies are just tender.
- Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add in onion, leek, swiss chard stems, and garlic and cook until beginning to soften, about 5-8 minutes. Add in swiss chard leaves and cook until wilted, about 1 minute. Let the veggies cool slightly, about 5 minutes.
- In a large bowl whisk together eggs, remaining salt and pepper, paprika and garlic powder.
- Transfer pie plate from the fridge and place it on a rimmed baking sheet. Add slightly cooled swiss chard mixture, roasted potatoes and 1” asparagus pieces into the prepared pie dough. Pour the egg mixture over the veggies and place the full asparagus stems decoratively over the top, slightly pushing them into the egg mixture. Sprinkle the chives over the top.
- Bake in the lower part of the oven for 40-50 minutes, or until the eggs are fully set and puffed up throughout. Cover the crust if browning too much.
- Let cool for about 10-15 minutes, before slicing and serving. Garnish with additional fresh chives if desired.
Hi! How would you freeze this? Container, aluminum foil, ziploc? What’s the best method? Thank you!
Best way would be to wrap it twice in plastic wrap. You can optionally wrap it after in aluminum foil as an extra layer of protection.
Made this tonight the flavours were amazing!! BUT I used one minute tapioca thinking it was tapioca flour LOL so my crust was a bit crunchy hahaha! it still tasted amazing, I’ll make it again and I’ll make sure it is tapioca flour this time, anyway wanted to say that in spite of my mistake this recipe is a keeper!
Hi Lexi, , I found the link to this recipe cause I was searching for recipes that I can stick in the freezer and heat later. But I don’t see any instructions on how to do that with this recipe. If possible, mind helping me out?
Freeze individual slices!
Hi Lexi! Just wondering where the nutritional information is for all your recipes?
Hi Amy! I don’t have nutritional data on most of my recipes as I don’t count calories and believe when eating a rich nutrient dense diet made up of real, whole foods you see results without having to count every calorie! I know some people would like nutrition data for specific health concerns, and there are many free online calculators available! I hope you love the quiche, it’s a great one! XO -Lexi
YES! This looks amazing! I like the idea of adding leaks! Will definitely have to try! Thanks for the recipe 🙂
GREAT IDEA! 🙂
