Create segmented circle in Adobe Illustrator and have each segment be a different color


As the title mentions I need to create a pie of sorts using Adobe Illustrator. It seems like it would be easy using the Polar Grid Tool but I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to make each 'piece' of the pie be into its own independant object/layer/etc. I need each piece to be independantly editible for color/content/text/etc. Please help an AI noob....

Use the graph tool, fill in your percentages:

Use the direct selection tool (the white arrow) to colour your pie pieces. Or you could do object -> expand to "dissect" your circle.
