Pizza and math have been a perfect match for years. Decades. First, students have been eating pizza over their math homework for generations. Next, pi is actually the ratio between a circle's circumference and its diameter (you’re picturing a pizza right now). And third, and the most marketable, pizza pies can be slung as part of a special offer on Pi Day — March 14 (you know, 3.14159265359 and so on).

Here are seven pizza places and bakeries in the Valley taking full advantage.
