March 14, 2014
Depending on your level of cynicism (here’s looking at yours, Will C.), today is either a day for nerds to enjoy being punny or a day for pun lovers to pretend to be math nerds. Why?
March 14 = 3/14
Pi sounds like Pie and voila! National Pi Day is born [an excuse to eat pie, make pi references and test your ability to recall the endless digits beyond the 4].
I fall somewhere between nerd and pun lover, but I’m definitely a theme enthusiast, which might explain my exuberant devotion to Pi(e) Day.
In honor of today, I bring you a super simple method for an individual pizza using one of my favorite flavor combinations. I love sharing a more official version of this pizza with friends and watching their faces savor what’s in their mouths. Then we all ask ourselves, “why isn’t this on pizza menus everywhere?!?”
My Favorite Pizza
Whole-wheat pita or a pizza crust
Parmesan or Pecorino Cheese, grated
Fresh basil when it’s in season
Arrange the ingredients to your liking. If you’re making the quick pita style, heat it in the toaster oven for an easy, delicious lunch. If you’re making a pizza crust, prepare the crust according to instructions and then bake in the oven at 425 degrees until the goat cheese is melted and softened and crust is warm, about 10-15 minutes.
Happy Pi(e) Day!

I will take any excuse to eat any and all types of pies today.
This one looks delicious (minus the olives, we are not friends)… I might have to make this for a lazy brunch this weekend!
I’ll keep the olives. Maybe even try a runny egg on the middle if you’re making it for brunch. I’ve never tried it on this combo, but I do love an egg pizza.
