Math enthusiasts know March 14 to be National PI Day, but pastry and pizza fans are thinking of a different kind of pie (with an e).

National PI Day The day recognizes the mathematical constant known as pi and also known as 3.14

Google Trends recently shared the most-searched pies in each U.S. state. According to the results, the most-searched type of pie in the U.S. is apple pie! Following apple are pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie, pecan, peanut butter pie, and chess pie.
