To remove the column name label from pie charts in Matplotlib we can set the y-axis label to not be visible.

Example

Consider the following DataFrame:

import pandas as pd

df = pd.DataFrame({"A":[3,4], "B":[5,6]})
df
A B
0 3 5
1 4 6

To plot column A from the above DataFrame as a pie chart:

df['A'].value_counts().plot(kind='pie', title='Pie Plot')

This produces the following:

Notice how by default the column name label A appears as the y-axis label.

To not display the y-axis label:

ax = df['A'].value_counts().plot(kind='pie', title='Pie Plot')
ax.yaxis.set_visible(False)

This produces the desired result without the column name y-axis label:
