A sandwich by definition is something between two pieces of bread.

We don't need this fake news nonsense subby!

If something is not commonly referred to as a sandwich outside of debate over whether it is or isn't one, then it's not a sandwich.

Many people fold pizza before eating it, which makes it a sandwich.

Not a sandwich. Here's the final definition that settles the issue forever:
a sandwich is a food item that has two sliced faces of leavened bread carrying filing between them, in which the food item can be held in the hand for eating.

sub? yes
hotdog? yes
hamburger? yes
pita? no--not leavened
taco? no--not leavened & no sliced face.

the definition is rooted in the historical requirement of slicing into bread to create a food-carrying device. There must be a sliced face.

You contradict yourself within the same post. Two separate pieces of bread or one? What is that sub isn't cut all the way through? Then it is another thing. Then it is a hot dog. Just like a taco.

Hot dogs and hamburgers are not sandwiches because hot dogs and hamburgers are still hot dogs and hamburgers even without the bread. You can eat them on bread, like you would a sandwich, but they are not the same.

/none of this matters

The number of pieces of bread does not matter. The requirement is two cut faces holding a filling.
A sub roll  with a lazy cut, barely into, with mustard squirted into it? Yes, sandwich. Making one cut into bread leaves two cut faces facing each other.

The phrase hot dog refers to meat item and separately to the served item of a hot dog in a hot dog bun. The former is not a sandwich, it's a form of sausage. The latter is a sandwich. Hot dog rolls (both New England style and the regular kind) have two cut faces of leavened bread between which the filler goes.

A taco is not leavened bread, and does not have any sliced faces. There is no value judgement or opinion as to the difference, but the Earl of Sandwich had the main insight of slicing into baked, leavened bread to make a filler carrier.

Actually, if you're going to write it as the URL, you should not capitalize the F. When written as a URL, it's just a machine-parseable resource locator, not a proper name. If you want to be technically correct, it may be the case that that the website fark.com is named Fark.

Do you mean Club Cake?

Yes, just like the Big Mac Cake.

Personally I hold a fringe opinion that all those are lasagne.

If you finish your Big Mac cake, then you can help yourself to some apple quiche. Or if you don't want cake, I have some microwavable chicken pot calzones.

Technically, a donut with no hole is a begnet or a sopapilla, depending on which side of the French/Spanish linguistic border you're on.
