 Because it's "piechart".  ?piechart will tell you about it.

  help.search("pie") would have found it for you.

[Obligatory comment on what you *should* do, from the documentation:


     Pie charts are a very bad way of displaying information. The eye
     is good at judging linear measures and bad at judging relative

     A bar chart or dot chart is a preferable way of displaying this
     type of data.


  good luck,
   Ben Bolker
