Born in the US on Pi Day (3.14), 2008, Pi Pizzeria was created to satisfy the needs of the modern urban consumer who was seeking high quality "real" pizza at reasonable prices in a distinct and service-oriented environment.

In October 2008, Pi's pizzas captured the heart and taste buds of then-Senator Barack Obama. In April 2009, Pi had the distinct honor and privilege to be invited to the White House to cook for the First Family. That made Pi Pizzeria the first non-staff to prepare food at the Obama White House.

Pi's success continues to be driven by elevating the pizza experience (through our Legendary Hospitality which is more typical of fine dining) with fresh and premium ingredients in an inspired and comfortable atmosphere. We are proud to serve both our deep dish corn meal and thin crust pizzas in the most compelling properties of our cities' most vibrant urban neighborhoods. As a member of the community we look forward to identifying meaningful ways to give back. This culture and the unique atmosphere Pi crafts for each location has particular importance for our guests and their loyalty.

Recent awards and recognition for the concept and its management team include:

  • Best Deep Dish Pizza (multiple years, multiple cities)
  • Restaurateur of the Year
