North Italia, an Italian restaurant at the King of Prussia Mall, plans on celebrating Pi Day with pizza.
The restaurant will offer a limited-edition pie starting Sunday, March 14, through the end of the month. It will replace the rotating Chef's Daily Pizza.
At the King of Prussia location, guests can order a cheesesteak pizza made with garlic cream sauce, sliced fontina cheese, steak, pepperoncini, garlic oil, grana Padano, crecenza cheese and fresh herbs for $17.
According to executive chef Paul Delarosa, the pie pays homage to one of Philly's favorite foods but with "a bit of Northern Italian flair."
For each purchase of a specialty pizza, North Italia will donate $1 to its national charity partner, FoodCorps, to support the nonprofit's mission of providing access to healthy food and nutrition to school-aged children nationwide.
The pie will be available for dine-in, takeout and delivery.
Different Pi Day pizza specials will be available at different North Italia locations. An andouille Creole pizza will be offered in Houston, Texas and a Carolina BBQ short rib pizza will be served in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Pi Day celebrates the mathematical constant Pi, the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. The circumference of any circle is about 3.14 times its diameter.
