BARABOO, Wis. (WMTV) - Several Wisconsin bakeries are using Pi Day to do some good. Neat-O’s Bake Shoppe in Baraboo is one bakery taking part in Pi for Peace. Neat-O’s is selling blueberry and lemon pies to honor the Ukrainian national colors.

March 14 is Pi Day, the annual celebration of the mathematical constant π (pi), which is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. The trillion-digit ratio is rounded to 3.14.

Albert Einstein was born on Pi Day and noted astrophysicist Stephen Hawking died on the made-up holiday in 2018.

But you don't have to be a math scholar to be acutely aware that Pi Day equals deals on circular food, including pies and pastries.

Pi Day, not to be confused with National Pie Day held in January or National Pizza Day in February, is usually a smorgasbord of deals on pizza, pastries and pot pies.

Here are the deals available at participating locations Monday, unless otherwise noted. To be on the safe side, always check with your closest location before heading out.

7-Eleven will have a $3.14 pizza deal Monday for members of its 7Rewards loyalty program. Get any whole pizza for $3.14, including cheese, pepperoni or 7-Meat at participating 7-Eleven and Speedway stores.
