Pi Day, a celebration of the mathematical constant pi (3.14) is on—when else?—March 14. Of course, it's also a day when people like to allow themselves many more pie slices than usual. Since preparations are already underway, Pinterest just released a list of the most-pinned pies in the world. And the winner is...no, not apple, not pumpkin, not key lime or lemon meringue or chocolate mousse. It's—wait for it—maple bacon breakfast pie.
That's right: The winner isn't even a dessert, but we're ok with that. If you've never had one of these pies for breakfast, there's no time like the present. Meanwhile, here are the top 10 other most-pinned pies around the world, according to Pinterest. Because no matter which way you slice it, pie is always a good idea.
