Transfer batter to pie dish; place on rimmed baking sheet. Place baking sheet with pie in oven. Bake pie until cracked on top and tester inserted into center comes out with moist crumbs attached, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool to room temperature (center will fall). Combine 1 ounce chopped chocolate and 1 tablespoon margarine in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 15-second intervals until glaze is smooth, stirring often. Drizzle glaze over pie. Sprinkle with almonds. DO AHEAD: Can be made 1 day ahead. Chill until cold. Tent with foil; chill. For strawberries: Toss berries, sugar, and orange peel in medium bowl to blend.
