Spaghetti, meatballs, garlic bread. Never again will you need separate bites to enjoy all the components of a classic dish. As a Pi inspired bonus, it contains circles (the pie), spheres (the meatballs), and cylinders (the spaghetti), all of which use Pi in their equations. I hope you like this delicious new way to eat pie for dinner instead of after!
 

Step 1: Garlic Bread Crust

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon active dry yeast
 1-1/4 cups lukewarm water
 3-1/4 cups flour, plus more for dusting
 1 teaspoon sugar
 1/2 cup cornmeal
 1 teaspoon salt
 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
 1 teaspoon minced garlic

Directions:

In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in 1/4 cup lukewarm water. Add 1/4 cup flour and the sugar; stir together. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.

Stir the remaining 1 cup lukewarm water,  3 cups flour, the cornmeal and salt into the yeast mixture. Combine the melted butter and garlic; mix into the dough. Mix on medium speed until all ingredients are combined and the dough forms a nice round ball. Quickly knead dough on  a lightly floured surface.

Lightly oil a large bowl, add the dough and turn to coat. Cover and set in a warm place until the dough is doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Punch down the dough, then knead for 2 to 3 minutes. Oil the pie plate and sprinkle with cornmeal. Divide dough into two. Set aside half the dough for the top of the pie. Roll out the other half of dough large enough to cover the pie plate. Press dough into the plate and trim around the edges. Aerate the bottom and sides of the crust with a fork. 

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and bake for 10 min.

wha.... spaghetti-pie?!
whoa!
This sounds like carbohydrate-filled deliciousness! Will try!
I think by definition a good pie is ≥ its number of calories. So the carbohydrates+ cheese+ meatballs+ butter crust= 1 awesome pie.
