Preheat oven to 375ºF. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
To prepare the filling, combine the pears, crab, cheese, ham, water chestnuts, green onions, lemon juice, and crushed red pepper in a bowl.
Cover the sheets of phyllo with plastic wrap to keep them from drying out. Place 2 phyllo sheets onto a 16-inch sheet of wax paper and brush evely with 1/2 teaspoon of the oil. Top with the remaining sheets of phyllo, brushing each sheet with oil. Sprinkle the top sheet evenly with the bread crumbs.
Spoon the filling, lengthwise, about 1 inch from a long side of the phyllo stack. Fold the 1 inch of dough over the filling and then fold in 1 inch of the short edges. Roll up the strudel, using the wax paper to help lift the dough. Transfer the roll to the baking pan, brush with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil. With a a sharp knife, lightly cut the top to indicate 4 portions, being careful not to cut all the way through. Bake the strudel until lightly browned and heated through, 15-20 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes, then cut at the marks and serve.
