Happy PI Day! Pieology Lunch
To celebrate this Mathematical Holiday, pizza restaurant Pieology offers an amazing deal of $3.14 for a custom pizza. This company is a concept similar to Subway, but for Pizza. It’s obvious that they are math fans, but they are also celebrating their founding day. The first Pieology restaurant opened on 3/14/2010.
Pi is a mathematical constant and irrational number and is written out as π. By definition, pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter and is equal to 3.14159. It is a decimal representation that never ends nor settles into a repeating pattern. Pi is also referred to as Archimedes Constant.
The “holiday” of Pi Day is celebrated yearly on March 14th, or 3/14.

We left for our nearest Pieology restaurant thinking it would be a “bit” busier than usual, but not by much.
Boy, were we wrong!
The line was through the restaurant and out the door! We waited for about half an hour before it was our turn.
I always go for the Alfredo’s Alfredo. This pie contains olive oil, three cheese Alfredo sauce, Parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese as a base. It is topped with garlic, mushrooms, artichokes, fresh basil, grape tomatoes, and black pepper. I’m not a fan of cooked tomatoes, so I always substitute the tomatoes for Kalamata olives. The great thing about Pieology is that you can customize their creations or create your own masterpiece. This is my personal favorite pie. Kalamata olives are my new favorite snack, perhaps inspired by Greek month?
Don’t wait until next year on the 14th of March, get to a Pieology as soon as possible!
