If I cut the very edge off this pizza, so the upper and lower crusts were disconnected, would it be a sandwich?

Yep.

Yup.

So really, I can make anything containing bread a sandwich if I reorganize it slightly.

A ham square between two croutons = sandwich.

It is indeed a sandwich, though let's hope that we don't go near such accursed objects.

Yes. Are my beliefs about sandwiches strange or something? Why would that not be a sandwich?

It is indeed a sandwich, though let's hope that we don't go anywhere more cursed.

There’s always sandwich options without bread:

Or should be.

And then there's the famous exchange between Mr. Samuel Foote and the Earl of Sandwich ...

[Foote] was invited to a convivial meeting at the house of the late Sir Francis Blake Delaval. Lord Sandwich was one of the guests upon the same occasion. When the Comedian entered, the Peer exclaimed, “What are you alive still?” “Yes, my Lord,” replied Foote. “Pray Sam,” retorted his Lordship, “which do you think will happen to you first, the experience of a certain disease, or an intimate acquaintance with the gallows?” “Why,” rejoined the Comedian, “that depends upon circumstances, and they are these, whether I prefer embracing your Lordship’s mistress, or, your principles.”

Or with the bread reversed. Now let's see if this is a sandwich.

I don’t see how you could call that thing a sandwich. A sandwich requires bread, that is the rule, anything else is a handheld salad at best.

Soup tends to have some kind of solid food in it, that begs the question, is soup a cereal? Or is cereal a soup?

Cereal's a soup, since not all soup has solid food and thus can't be cereal.

Depends: if it is a smooth puree or broth, yes. If it has chunks of stuff in it, no.

How narrowly or broadly are we defining “bread” for this purpose?
