@DVDBZN@oppodude taco came first, ergo, a submarine “sandwich” is truly a taco. If there are two pieces of cooked dough around the filling, it is a sandwich, unless the pieces were linked all the way around the edge to lock in the filling, which is a calzone. If their is one piece, folded around the filling, it is a taco. If it is one piece, slit on one side and stuffed, that is a gyro. It it is one piece with toppings, that is a pizza.
So, there is a Venn diagram between tacos and sandwiches where a submarine sandwich is in the overlap?
Does that also mean an open-faced sandwich is a pizza, or pizzas are open faced sandwiches?
Shared the convo with someone else, and this was their response. Care to counter?
I’m 100% in the camp of a pizza being an open faced sandwich. In fact a stuffed crust pizza is just a weird version of a Croque Madame which is a sandwich with an egg and cheese melted on top of the sandwich.
If you take a sandwich and batter and deep fry it, it doesn’t become a calzone, it’s a deep friend sandwich which means a sandwich can be “closed” and still a sandwich, such as a Monte Cristo Sandwich which is universally called a sandwich. So a clazone is just a closed sandwich, not a new thing.
If you aren’t hungry enough for a full sandwich, you use one slice of bread and make a “fold over sandwich” which is the same thing as a hotdog / taco.
By person 2’s definition of a gyro, a sub sandwich would be a gyro because you take a long loaf of bread and slit one side and stuff it, and that’s just not right. A sub is absolutely a sandwich. Person 2 is very confused.
Also the idea that a sub sandwich would be a different thing depending on whether or not you cut the top completely of or left it hinged is a feeble definition for food classification. If you have a stale hotdog bun that splits when you put the hotdog in, you aren’t suddenly eating a sandwich that was a taco 2 seconds ago
