Pumpkin pie only requires three ingredients to make, and nothing needs to be cooked, which means you can make it with your 2x2 inventory crafting grid. This makes it a fairly reliable food source compared to the likes of food items such as steak (which requires a furnace ) and cake (which requires a crafting table and a bucket of milk ) when you may not have access to these things, even temporarily. Assuming you have the right resources (pumpkins can be difficult to find, after all), pumpkin pie can be an excellent early-game food item, due to its relative cheapness (more or less excluding the somewhat elusive pumpkin) and high hunger replenishment, as well as a nice inexpensive later-game food item.
