I substituted a premade pie crust instead of the dough, only used 6 oz crab since that is what my can was, and 10 oz thawed frozen spinach. I put the spinach in when I sauted the onions to eliminate the cooking spray and get rid of the extra moisture. With these changes I calculated 1/6 of the pie as 302 calories. I will be making again!
