Pi Day is one of the most underappreciated and unrecognized holidays. Honored by pi(e)-lovers every fourteenth of March, the unofficial holiday was first coined by physicist Larry Shaw in 1988 to celebrate pi—the mathematical constant of 3.14. March 14 also happens to be Albert Einstein’s birthday—coincidence, we think not. Today, middle school teachers and pie aficionados everywhere celebrate by indulging in pies of all kinds—pizza pie, fruit pie, cottage pie, hand pies … it’s all fair game. In anticipation of one of our favorite food holidays (and to raise a glass to Einstein—who was a vegetarian, after all), we’ve done a deep dive through Instagram to find the 14 most drool-worthy vegan pies to spark excitement for Pi Day.

Both are simply outstanding, and both happen to be gluten-free. This best-seller is available for nationwide shipping online and for pickup at the boutique bakery’s adorably whimsical Laguna Niguel, CA storefront.
