spanish pizza

Hello,

I've noticed that my colombian boyfriend always says something like "piksa" when talking about or mentioning pizza. I thought it was just something he did, but now I've found out that his aunt pronounces it the same way as he does. So, I've come to the conclusion that it's either some weird family thing they have, or a common way of pronouncing "pizza" in Colombia, or at least in the region (they come from and about Bogota). So, to find out, I would like to know from you how the word "pizza" is commonly pronounced in various spanish-speaking areas.

Thank you!

    Do you know how to write pinyin on the computer with the correct tone marks? When I google it, I find a lot of explanations of how to write Chinese…

    Hello linguaphiles! My in-laws recently gifted us with a folding screen, which has a cherry blossom design and some writing in what I'm guessing…
