Everywhere You Can Get Cheap Pie and Pizza for Pi Day

There's a certain amount of absurdity baked into the pie of any food holiday. It's not really a holiday, and it's more often than not about some food you have no interest in consuming. The next level of absurdity may belong to Pi Day, held every March 14. Get it? 3.14?

Pi, represented by the Greek letter π, represents a mathematical constant, the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. That's probably more math than you were looking for, but it's the basis for what's going on here. The infinitely long number starts with 3.14 and since today is March 14, it's Pi Day. And because pi and pie are homonyms, there are a boatload of deals on pies and pizza pies for your mouth to enjoy. You'll find deals from Marie Callender's, Papa John's, 7-Eleven, and more. 

Here's our running list of all the best deals you're going to find celebrating Pi Day.
