Wall-to-Wall Wednesday: Food Boat Delivers
This week's Wall-to-Wall Wednesday features Pizza Pi: the food boat that delivers pizza and ice cream throughout the U.S Virgin Islands. Established and operated by Sasha and Tara Bouis (see below), Pizza Pi is but an extension of their home, open most days from 11AM until sunset.
Transforming their home into a pizza boat took quite a bit of planning and design work. It now includes a DIY water maker that produces 40 gallons of water an hour for dishwashing, a Baker’s Pride brick lined oven with two baking chambers to cook four pizzas every 15 minutes, as well as a hood ventilation system to usher heat out and keep the boat’s galley cool. So the next time you visit Christmas Cove, Great St. James Island near the east end of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, make sure you order your fresh New York-style pizza.
