UPDATE: You can now install pip using pkg.
[cmp@server ~]# pkg install py27-pip Updating FreeBSD repository catalogue... FreeBSD repository is up to date. All repositories are up to date. The following 1 package(s) will be affected (of 0 checked): New packages to be INSTALLED: py27-pip: 9.0.1 Number of packages to be installed: 1 The process will require 13 MiB more space. 2 MiB to be downloaded.

Somewhat strangely, pip is not installed when you install Python using FreeBSD’s pkg. However, there’s a very simple fix.
