Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th around the world because the date is 3-14. (Not to be confused with “Pie Day,” which is celebrated in January.)
We think Pi is worthy of its own day, and we love that businesses celebrate it with deals on pizza and pie!
While you’re enjoying the Pi Day deals (and figuring out the circumference of any round foods in front of you), consider these fun facts Blaze Pizza sent us:
- Pi Day is celebrated each year on March 14, to commemorate the irrational number of 3.141592653
- In 2009 the US government recognized March 14 as National Pi Day
- Pi is defined as the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It’s an irrational number, meaning it cannot be written as a simple fraction
- March 14 is also Einstein’s birthday. He was born in Germany in 1879. (Happy birthday, Einstein!)
- The first organized Pi Day was in 1988 at the San Francisco Exploratorium. Physicist Larry Shaw had the idea to celebrate the day by marching around a circle and then eating some pies
Sounds good to us. Now on to the Pi Day deals!
Pi Day Food Deals in Wichita
BJs Restaurant and Brewhouse Pi Day Special
Dine in at BJs and get a mini one-topping pizza for $3.14 on Pi Day, Saturday, March 14. As usual, tax and tip aren’t included in this offer.
Blaze Pizza Pi Day Deal (Canceled – see below for new offer)
Blaze Pizza is canceling its in-store Pi Day deal and replacing it with an app offer. Here’s their statement:
“Blaze Pizza prioritizes the health and safety of its guests and team members. As communities continue to feel the increased impact of the [current situation] and given that the annual Pi Day event draws large crowds of pizza lovers to Blaze restaurants, the company has announced the cancelation of its in-store Pi Day celebration scheduled for Saturday, March 14.
In place of the in-store promotion, all app users will receive the $3.14 pizza reward in their app starting Monday, March 16, redeemable through the end of the year at their convenience. Guests should make sure to download the Blaze Pizza app by 11:59pm PST on Sunday, March 15 in order to automatically receive the new Pi Day reward.”
On March 14, participating Blaze Pizza will help you celebrate Pi Day by offering $3.14 whole pizzas starting at 3:14 p.m. at its Wichita location (2692 N. Greenwich Court), and each location across the country. The deal is only available via its app for in-store purchases, and in participating restaurants; one Pi-Day priced pizza per guest. Any 11-inch pizza can be made with either the house-made original or gluten-free dough. Guests can still purchase the Keto, Cauliflower and High-Rise crust options for an additional upcharge. Redemption is subject to availability. Get there early, because the line gets long fast!
Cheddars Pi Day Deal
Cheddars Scratch Kitchen has a Pi Day offer on my favorite type of pie – chicken pot pie! According to its website, when you order a Cheddars Homemade Pot Pie on 3/14, you get a second pot pie to bake at home! The regular price of a Cheddars pot pie starts at $9.99, so this is quite the deal.
Copper Oven Pi Day Deal
Thanks to Sherry for finding this one! Copper Oven is celebrating Pi Day on March 14, 2020 with slices of their delicious pies on sale for $2.49. The slices regularly cost a dollar more.
Dillons Pi Day Deal

Village Inn Pi Day Deal
At Village Inn, save $2 off whole pies on both 3/13 and on 3/14! That’s two days of Pi discounts. Even we can do the math on this one: two days of Pi Day are better than one.
One non-food related Pi Day “special”
NASA Pi Challenge
And while the rest of us are pretending to celebrate anything other than the circumference of the food going into our mouths, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration has actually come up with some mathematical problems for kids to solve for its Pi-in-the-Sky challenge again in 2020. It’s actually quite interesting, and geared toward K-12 students.
The math problems were posted on March 9 but I didn’t hear about it until today, so you better get busy solving! The solutions will be posted on March 15.
Happy Pi Day!
