Pi day is 3.14! If you go to The Pie Pizzeria on 3.14 you can get a voucher for a free pizza! (We've been the past couple years and I'm pretty sure it's a solid tradition.)
We love to celebrate this day with the kids, they are still a little young to understand the mathematical reasoning completely, but they get the connections, circle, circumference, pie, pi. It's all coming together. After another explanation at dinner tonight my 6 year old said "Ya, but why are we eating pizza instead of pie?" Then we had to explain it all again.
We always go out for pizza pie on Pi day, but this year I couldn't think of a better spot to celebrate pi day than THE PIE in Ogden!
The have amazing pizza! And as it turns out, their pull apart are just as good! I always like to try something new when we go out to eat and this was our first time having The Chedda Pull-A-Part. They kinda blew my mind! I'm still over here thinking about them and when I will get to eat them again. Order the The Chedda Pull-A-Part's and you can thank me later.
We also got a half chef salad and a large pizza (for a family of 6). The slices are huge and they LOAD on the toppings, I couldn't even finish one slice! And I usually eat 3 when we get pizza! If you have a big party, there is a 23" PIZZA!
Everyone loved it and we have an entire box of leftovers so I don't have to cook tomorrow (double bonus).
The Pie has a fun atmosphere, the Ogden location was very family friendly and the kids loved being able to write their name on the wall. They also loved spotting names of people they know.
They have a rotating seasonal special Pie every three months. I think I should set a goal to try all of them!
