In 2012, Sasha and Tara Bouis (our founders!) hatched the idea for their pizza boat – a 100% custom vessel that brings authentic NY style pizza to the waters of the US Virgin Islands. After three years of searching for the right hull, they found a G.L. Watson designed, thirty-seven foot long aluminum motor sailor that had been abandoned in Antigua for almost a decade. The yacht’s interior had been devoured by termites, leaving a huge mess, but also a blank canvas. The couple knew she was perfect from the moment they looked into the vessel’s stern. Sasha and Tara bought the shell of the boat and spent two years building the interior. Pizza Pi splashed down into the waters of the Virgin Islands in November of 2014.
In 2018, having established Pizza Pi as an iconic attraction in the Virgin Islands, Sasha and Tara made the decision to move on to the next step in their journey together and sold Pizza Pi to new owners. Heather and Brian Samelson have picked up the mantle established by Tara and Sasha of bringing the popular stateside phenomenon of food trucks to the Virgin Islands in the form of a family friendly, classy, maritime dining experience that also reflects the funky, unique vibe of the islands.
Today, located in Christmas Cove, Pizza Pi has served thousands of pizzas to hungry boaters for over six years. Ranked among the top restaurants in the US Virgin Islands according to TripAdvisor, Pizza Pi should be a must visit on your next trip to the Caribbean.
