Place rhubarb and strawberries in a bowl. Add lemon zest, sugar and corn starch. Gently toss.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brush oil or butter on the inside of a 9 inch spring form pan, cut a piece of parchment for the bottom.
On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 11-12 inch circle. Place in pan and gently work into bottom and up sides. Fold down crust on sides to make even all around the edge. If you have time to put in the freezer for 5-10 minutes do so. Spread almond mixture evenly on bottom of dough, add strawberry mixture evenly. Place pan on a parchment lined sheet pan and bake in middle of oven for 1 hour and 10-15 minutes. If crust is browning too quickly, tent with foil.
