Portuguese term or phrase: pizão
Another mysterious ingredient, this time from an industrial recipe for beer biscuits. Text: "55kgs Farinha, 5 kgs fécula,15kgs açúcar, 3,500kgs manteiga, 0,700kgs carbonato, 0,200kgs bicarbonato, 2kgs **pizão**, 7 litros cerveja, 0,030kgs canela, 7 litros agua, 700gramas sal refinado."

I have no idea, after much dictionary and online research, what this might be. Bear in mind that it may be a typo (I've tried the obvious ones) or an obsolete or regional word.

Any ideas?
