Pie is a foodstuff composed of a pastry crust and a filling. The two types of pie are:

* Dessert pies are generally filled with fruit or puddings witha flaky crust. * Savory pies are generally filled with domestic meat or game, spiced and served as a main course. The crust is usually denser than dessert pies.

Both types of pies can be served hot or cold. Various appropriate side dishes may accompany a pie.

The term pie may be expanded to include any food with a crust and a filling (e.g. Eskimo Pies, a wafer and ice cream snack)

Pi (it's a Greek letter) is the ratio of any circle's circumference to its diameter.
