|Halacha - wrap|
|Submitted by jmh Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
|Answer: I must confess that I have never seen a "wrap", but my understanding is that it consists of a thin, not sweet dough baked in an oven wrapped around a not sweet filling, similar to the aish tanur/lafa here in Eretz Yisroel. Since the base is regular bread dough, and the filling is a main course and added after the baking, and the final product is more of a meal than a snack or treat, I don't see any reason it should not be hamotzi. Please let me know if I am not understanding the situation accurately.
