This question has been bothering me for a while and has gotten me into some heated debates. Is a hot dog a sandwich? If a hot dog is a sandwich, wouldn't a taco or a quesadilla also be classified as a sandwich? Please explain your position on why you believe these food items are or are not sandwiches.
If hot dogs and pita wraps are sandwiches, I would consider tacos and quesadillas sandwiches. I don't see much of a difference between these. They all have a bread type wrap, filled with meat, toppings and condiments. The thing is I would never call a hot dog, taco, quesadilla or a wrap a sandwich. I would not consider a folded slice of pizza or a calzone a sandwich. A folded piece of pizza is just a folded piece of pizza. A calzone is a calzone. I would not consider a pupusa a sandwich, which is essentially a Salvadorian calzone. Maybe a calzone could be called a Italian pupusa?
