No, pie does not require yeast for preparation. While yeast is used in some baked goods, making a pie or pie crust does not require yeast. It is usually made as follows:

·      Pie crust dough is made with flour, butter, salt, and sugar and chilled in the refrigerator.

·      It is then rolled out into a circle and placed on a pie pan, with the edges trimmed.

·      It is then covered with a plastic wrap and again refrigerated.

·      After the filling is made, it is loaded onto the pie crust and baked.

You can follow this recipe to make a pie crust.
