This Couple Dropped Everything to Build a Pizza Boat in the Caribbean

This is no ordinary food truck. It's Pizza ∏, a floating pizzeria in the US Virgin Islands. Tara Bouis, a gourmet chef, and her husband Sasha, a computer programmer, left their busy lives on the mainland behind and operated a charter boat for a few years. Then they purchased an old 37-foot boat and personally renovated it into a floating commercial-grade kitchen. It even has a brick-lined pizza oven on board!

Now they anchor their boat offshore in the Virgin Islands and bake gourmet pizzas, made to customers' specifications. Last year, Bloomberg News reported on their extraordinary pizzeria:

The boat is anchored off the east end of St. Thomas in Christmas Cove, next to Great St. James Island. (Also nearby is Little St. James, the private island owned by billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein.) It’s an ideal location to snag boats from St. John and St. Thomas that are passing through on daytime snorkeling trips, as well as long-term charters. And you can order your pizza on your boat’s hand radio, call it in via cell, or even e-mail it. Then you can either pick up the pizza in your dinghy, or Pi will deliver it to you if you’re anchored in Christmas Cove.
