I have this recipe from Gourmet Grains, Beans and Rice for Polenta Crust
I have tried it and it can be a finger food.   It is firm.   Polenta is
made of cornmeal.  Here it is:

nonstick cooking spray
1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
1 cup cold water
1 cup boiling water
1/2 teaspoon salt to taste
1/2 cup grated fatfree parmesan ( optional for me)

Spray a 9 inch pie pan with nonstick spray.  Preheat oven to 375.  Place
cornmeal in a small bowl.   Add cold water and stir  until well mixed.
Stir cornmeal mixture into saucepan of boiling water.  Cook, stirring
over low heat until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and
stir salt and Parmesan.

Spread cornmeal mixture to form a crust in the greased pan, using wet
hands or a spatula.  Spread evenly across bottom and up sides.  Bake
uncovered for 30 miutes.

I make this crust on a rather large square pan and do not shape into a
pie, I, then  cut into squares.

Toppings can consist of sauteed green and yellow peppers , mushrooms ,
