Ordering Pizza in Brazil

If Portuguese is your second language, be careful how you pronounce "pizza." It sounds the same as in English. Don't try, as I did, to pronounce it like the Italian "Pisa," with a long "z" in the middle. "Pisa" means "spanking." Where ever it may be appropriate to ask for a spanking, at the local pizza parlor it is not.
