If you spent your grade school days trying to memorize as many decimal digits of Pi as you could, you're not alone. 3.14 is a number stamped in our brains, those two straight vertical lines with a squiggly one on top instantly bringing us back to middle school math class.
March 14 (numerically, 3/14) is recognized as National Pi Day, for obvious reasons.
Though "Pi Day" may bring back memories and dreams of decadent, delicious pies, its easy to forget about another kind of pie that has both shaped our lives and brought us our most blissful times—we're talking about pizza pies.

Luckily, Pizza Hut hasn't forgotten. In fact, they're doing something this year to make sure that you don't either.
In a press release Thursday, Doug Terfehr, senior director of public relations at Pizza Hut, shared what exactly the company is doing for the holiday:
"In celebration of National Pi Day, which pizza companies worldwide have sort of adopted as their own special holiday, Pizza Hut is marrying math and pizza in a one-of-a-kind challenge to find our most math-inclined fans and reward them with our great-tasting pizza."
Beginning at 8 a.m. (EST) on March 14, Pizza fanatics can log on to Pizza Hut's "Hut Life" blog and take a slice at answering 3 math questions. If they manage to solve the problems correctly, they can win 3.14 years of free pizza hut pizza (valued at approximately $1,600).
We're guessing the questions will be a little bit more difficult than being asked to recite digits in front of your entire class.
The company is partnering with Princeton professor and mathematical genius John H. Conway for the challenge. In possibly the best quote in history about pizza and math (since there are so many), he had this to say:
"Pi may be irrational, but free pizza is anything but."
Yes, John, yes. We could not agree more.
