Also, pizza and pie are two very different things, they are not interchangeable.
This is one matter in which I'll join Public Enemy and fight the power. A pie involves a pastry lid and braised meat (or, if you're so inclined, stewed fruit). A pizza is ... pizza. One of these things is not like the other. I do not understand people--and there are many here--who deem a baked disk of bread topped with cheese, tomato, et al to be pie.
I can easily name 30 (possibly 100) pies that have no pastry lid that noone would argue aren't pies.
...need I go on.
