"Tiss" or "Tizz"

Had an online conversation with a friend today. He wondered what "tis" means... like "tis the season to be jolly."

"It's a contraction for "it is."" I told him.
"Well..why is the "s" soft?" he asked. "It sounds like piss!"
"Wait...how are you pronouncing it?"
"Tis...rhymes with piss."
"No...it's `Tis...rhymes with pizz!"
"No, listen to any recording...it's "tiss!""

So...I'm curious. I've always heard it as "tizz." Do you guys hear "Tiss" or "Tizz" and how do YOU pronounce it?
