It is national PI day. Are you making round or square? Sweet or Savoury?

      Mmm, me too! I make a vegan version and my co-workers couldn't tell the difference=]

        Ooh, that sounds perfect! Me too! It's too bad pi day isn't in the summer, when there's more fresh fruit available. I'm so sick of apples.

        I'm making soy cheese pizza, heavy on the sauce, round. Plus, maybe a pumpkin pie.

            When I saw the title I thought you were talking about Japanese's White Day.

            Anyway, black and white chocolate pie should work for both!

                I think they mean the number pi

                  exactly, hence the 14th. Pi are square or Pi are round?

                    Silly! Pi are round. Cornbread are square.

                      That is good! But sometimes cornbread comes in sticks.

                  March 14 = 3.14 = pi

                  Pizza, in honor of the Second Pizza Theorem pertaining to Pi.
                  This gives the volume of a pizza of thickness - a- and radius -z- :

                  Buttermilk pie for dessert.
                  Maybe.

                      I remember celebrating PI day in chemistry class in high school! I think I'm going to make a pumpkin pie. Possibly apple too.

                        Key lime with a gingersnap crust.

                          I think I am going to go with pi r square and make a Shepherd's Pie. I've not made one this winter and spring is creeping up on us,.

                              My kid's Jr. High Math Dept. celebrates by buying apple pies from Marie Callendars and every kid in the school gets a slice.

                              Happy Birthday on that day to Albert Einstein!

                                A round Quattro Formaggi pizza on Peter Reinhart's Napoletana crust -- better than which it does not get.
