Last time I was in the states I tried all the fast food which had confusing names to me to see what it was. Was disappointed to find Pizza Pie was not a pizza with a pie crust on top. And Cheese Steak is a kebab with melted cheese. :(

their pizza is not worth $2 or $3 a slice. I lvie on long island. A suburb of NYC we have some of the best pizza in the USA. I can get a mom and pop pizza slice that is twice the size for $1.50 - $3 depending on the place. why would I buy a smaller worse tasting slice at pizza hut for the same or more?

The translation of Pizza from ancient Greek is basically 'pressed pie'.

 

Way back when, pies were mostly savory, not sweet, the definition of pie has evolved over the years to include the fruit and custard pies we eat today.

Alton Brown has a video on pie if you want to take the time to learn about it.

Whether sweet or savory, pies generally have a top on them, and even when not, have some form of pastry crust.  Pizza's are technically a savory topping on top of a leaven bread base, not pastry, so are not a pie.

What would a Shepard's pie or cottage pie be classed as?

I think the mostly sweet pies is a mostly American thing, outside in the UK, Australia, New Zealand etc savory pies have a much, much larger presence.
