Etymology of PIE

I was reading last night about pastry- the word developed from the greek word for embroidered veil. And Pie comes from Magpie, the bird, due to the it being a collection of odds,ends and left overs put together in a crust, in reference to the bird gathering a mish-mash of objects to form it's nest.
