It’s mathematically delicious
Pi Day is March 14 and is the mathematical celebration 🎉 of the number that represents the ratio of a circle’s circumference ⭕ to its diameter. The figure has an infinite number of digits 🤯, but is usually just abbreviated to 3.14.
It is true that we deal with a lot of numbers here at Bite Squad (we have a few mathematizers who crunch numbers and calculate data and do whatever else left-brained 🧠 people do), but it’s safe to say that most of us are more “pie people” than we are “pi people.”
So in honor of Pi Day, we had our in-house nerd department 🤓 round up the most common ways our customers consume pie 🥧🍕!
First, the sweetie pies…
From fruity pies to chocolaty pies, creamy pies to flaky pies there is no shortage of ways to cure that sweet tooth with pie delivery! Here is a list of some popular ways our customers enjoy pie.
It doesn’t have to be autumn to enjoy apple pie 🍎! It’s easy to get in your apple a day with sweet and tart apples, plus cinnamon and sugar baked in a flaky crust.
Key Lime Pie
Tart and creamy, key lime pie is an American dessert made with the juice of key limes, egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk 🥛. Baked in a graham cracker crust, this pie is perfect for those with a taste for the tropics.
Pecans, egg, butter and sugar (which can include white or brown sugar, corn syrup, molasses, maple syrup or honey) come together in pecan pie for a crunchy, sticky and sweet-as-could-possibly-be treat. Go on, get nutty 🥜.
Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
Strawberry pie 🍓 is good, but rhubarb takes it over the top! Tangy, fruity and sweet, strawberry rhubarb pie is a childhood favorite. And if you’re not up for baking, this is one dessert to order for delivery.
Snickers bars 🍫 and cheese sounds like a strange combination, but it sure tastes like a match made in heaven. You’ll have to try it for yourself.
Next, the savory pies…
If you prefer savory over sweet, we have a handful of pies for you, too! From chicken and gravy filled pie crusts to handheld cheese and spinach pies, there’s something for everyone.
There’s nothing as hearty, warming and filling as a chicken pot pie. With chicken 🍗, gravy, peas, carrots 🥕 and onions in a pastry crust, it’s the perfect meal for kids and adults alike.
A Greek spinach pie called spanakopita has a filling of chopped spinach, feta cheese, eggs 🥚and onions all layered in phyllo pastry dough. It’s traditionally served as an appetizer at Greek restaurants.
Shepherd’s pie is different than a pot pie in that it always contains beef and is topped with potatoes 🥔. You can probably find shepherd’s pie for delivery from an Irish pub near you.
Steak & Mushroom Pie
Another Irish favorite, this steak 🥩 and mushroom pie boasts braised beef, mushrooms and vegetables in a rich gravy under a pile of mashed potatoes and melted cheese. Now that’s comfort food.
A lobster pie is a luxurious twist on the classic pot pie. Typically, they have both lobster meat and bacon 🥓 (daaaang), veggies and gravy and are served in mini, individual sized servings.
Last—but not least, the pizza pies…
The true question is why do we sometimes call pizza a pizza pie? There are a few theories. Some say it’s because pizza is cut in triangles like the dessert pie. Some say its round shape is reminiscent of a pie chart (but honestly, which came first: pizza or the pie chart?). And others maintain that the first pizzas made in the U.S. were called “tomato pies,” and it evolved from there. In any case, we can dig it.
Some say cheese pizza is boring. We say why mess with a good thing. And if you’re going to add a topping to your cheese pizza, make it extra cheese 🧀.
It’s probably no surprise that the second most ordered pizza is pepperoni 🍕. Any way you slice it (squares? triangles?), pepperoni is a crowd-pleasing choice.
Next up, the good ol’ sausage (mushroom 🍄 and onion) pizza. Hey, it’s a well rounded meal with protein, veggies, dairy and carbs.
Every pizza place has their delicious combos! From bbq chicken to Greek, Hawaiian 🍍 to supreme, you gotta love the creative specialty ‘zas.
What kind of pie lover are you? A lover of pi, sweetie pies, savory pies or pizza pies? Probably all of the above 👌🏽.
