Whether you’re partial to a traditional fruit pie with a lattice crust, a chocolate pudding pie, or feel that pizza for dinner is just as good as a dessert pie to celebrate, I’ve got you covered. Make your favorite recipe this evening, and bookmark the rest for next year.

No matter how you celebrate, Happy Pi Day!

10 Vegan Pie Recipes to Help You Celebrate Pi Day! | Seitan Beats Your Meat

Mini Florida Key Lime Pies

If it’s snowing where you live today, key lime pie is a great way to pretend you’re spending the afternoon on the beach. Since these pies are made in mini springform pans, each one can be your own personal pie, naturally.

Peach Pie

This recipe was created during Mad Men Vegan MoFo 2013. Despite its cinematic qualities and glamour, it’s really an honest to goodness fruit pie. While the filling calls for peaches, you could swap the fruit out for apples, blueberries, cherries, or another filling of your choice.

S’mores Mini Pies

If you prefer mini pies, or would prefer the ease of baking your pie in a muffin tin, these mini s’mores pies will be right up your alley. Starting with a graham cracker dough crust, the pies are filled with thick chocolate pudding, and topped with toasted aquafaba marshmallow.

Aquafaba Lemon Meringue Pie

I broke out the pi cookie cutter to garnish this vegan version of a lemon meringue pie, using aquafaba for the meringue. The pie filling is lemony tart, and it’s topped with baked chickpea meringue.

Salted Key Lime Pie

Using a similar recipe to the first pie in this roundup, this full-size key lime pie is on the cusp of being a margarita pie with the additional salt and salt garnish. Coconut cream whip is optional, but recommended.

Oreo Cheesecake

We’re now leaving pie territory with this recipe for cheesecake. If it looks like a pie and it’s baked in a pie plate, isn’t it more pie than cake. I’ll let you be the judge.

Apple Pie Pancakes

If making pies isn’t really your cup of tea, you can still enjoy a Pi Day breakfast with these apple pancakes topped with apple pie filling. They’re really an autumnal recipe, but apples are cheap and abundant at the grocery store year round. You may not have the mini pumpkin and crunchy leaves as props this time of year, but you’re really only eating the pancakes (I’d think.)

Moon Pies

Is it a pie or a cakelike cookie sandwich? It has “pies” in the name, so I think it deserves a spot on this list. This is another recipe from Mad Men Vegan MoFo—a solid option if you doubt your abilities to make a pie crust.

You could have pizza delivered from your favorite spot in town, or try your hand at this homemade vegan Chicago deep dish pizza. There are options for both traditional and cheeseburger deep dish pizza.  Your call.

Thanksgiving Leftovers Pizza (Pie)

But it’s not Thanksgiving…? Here’s a little secret: any leftovers can go on top of pizza crust and become a pizza. Spaghetti and meatballs? Pizza. Biscuits, gravy, and pancakes brunch leftovers? Pizza. Veggie burgers? Pizza. Pad Thai? Pizza. The world is your oyster (pizza.)
