Eat Pizza by the Pound & Stalk Cats in Sitges, Spain

Sitges is a charming beach town in Spain, just a forty minute train ride from Barcelona. It is also the same place where fish nibbled on my feet and my first pintxos experience was had. Apparently lots of cool stuff happens in this city.

To further support my case, Sitges sells pizza by the pound. Not by the slice. By the POUND. Genius. Yes I am fully aware that they use kg in Spain, just go with it.

Enrich bakery boasts a consistent line out the door of hungry patrons waiting for their baked goods. For good reason. You will find a tempting selection of artisan pastries, breads and pizza. Since I had already taken advantage of the complimentary breakfast at The Mirror Hotel, something savory was now in order. Namely, pizza.

Luckily, there were only a few pizza choices, because I immediately wanted a pound of each.

Though, after briefly rationalizing with myself, saving a little stomach space for the upcoming pintxos was a better idea. So, using my hands to indicate the approximate size that was desired, I only spread them out approximately five inches. Respectable and not gluttonous. The counter lady then cut off my requested section with a pair of scissors. Just like my Italian grandma used to do.

Opting for the sliced tomato and asparagus, it was weighed in. A whopping .204 kg of pure heaven, about three euros and well worth every one. I would have paid double.

As I walked the streets inhaling my pizza by the pound, it became evident that there was an abundance of cats who were…not in the pound. Maybe they wanted pizza too.

Everywhere I looked they were stalking me, or rather, my slice.

They were in the middle of the cobbled streets, behind the irons gates and peeking through the bushes. Just waiting and watching.

Were they cute? Yes. Were they sweet? Yes. Am I a total sucker for animals with the aforementioned qualities? Absolutely. Were they getting any of my pizza? Absolutely not. This was too good to share.

After my pizza was gone, I felt a tinge of guilt for not sharing. But, it slowly dissolved with the increasing feeling of contentment coming from my belly.

Have you ever eaten pizza by the pound? Have you been to Sitges, Spain?

    I have seen this in Italy but not in Spain.  That pizza does look good.  I need another trip to Spain.

      I must have missed all the cats when I was in Italy, which is proably a good thing since I was always eating pizza there 😉

      Who would have know that they have fabulous pizza in Spain? I won’t say just as good as Italy (I don’t want anyone to throw tomatoes at me), but pretty damn good.

    Oh yum…that looks delish! Much safer to show them how much you want than try to guess how much it would weigh and give them a figure in kg O:-)

    yummy, that pizza looked really good.  What a great idea to sell it be the pound 🙂

    Haha, I'm so cheap, I'd probably lose weight by paying for pizza by the pound. 🙂

    Okay so I've never eaten pizza by the pound and have never been to Sitges…but now I want to do both things. I spent so much time in Barcelona and I'm disappointed that I never made it out there.
    One thing that I have done is take an insane amount of cat pictures while I was in Europe. I was going to make a whole facebook album dedicated to it.

    I have never been to Sitges, but I have been to lots of places in Spain. It's one of my favourite countries! I seem to have missed out on good pizza when I was there… but I know it exists!
