Why is my pita bread not puffing up?
If the oven temperature is too low, steam won’t puff the pitas, and you’ll end up with duds. As soon as they puff, they’re done. Over-baking will leave them hard and dry. * If you don’t own a baking steel or stone, you can bake the pitas in a cast iron skillet instead.
Why is my pita bread chewy?
The thing that makes bread chewy is gluten. The easiest way to make chewier bread would probably be to use flour with a higher gluten content. You’ve said you don’t want to “add gluten” so I’ll assume that option is not on the table.
Why does my pita bread fall apart?
It’s a product of extremely high heat forcing the air to expand and the bread to rise quickly, so that gluten strands snap through the middle. The hot oven causes the “loaves” to puff dramatically and collapse subsequently on the pocket enclosed.
