If gyoza taco and okonomiyaki hot dogs were too ambitious a combination for you, why not keep things simple with a Gyoza Pizza Sandwich? Because at FamilyMart convenience stores around Japan, you'll be able to.
First things first--if you are perplexed by the "Pizza Sand" title, do not worry--this product does not contain any of the coarse and grainy beach material that Anakin Skywalker loathes. "Sand" is the unfortunate romanization many Japanese companies use for sando (サンド), which is short for "sandwich" (サンドイッチ).
The product is a new inclusion in FamilyMart's lineup of microwavable sandwich (or sand, if you prefer) wraps that are essentially soft tortilla Hot Pockets, and a collaboration with popular gyoza chain Osaka Ohsho. The Gyoza Pizza Sandwich, priced at 270 yen, is said to be a reproduction of the chain's dumplings (the wrap is stuffed with pork, cabbage, and chives) and to be like eating one giant gyoza.
