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.
Do you have to heat pita bread before eating?
Serve your pita warm and soft for a chewy appetizer or snack. If you don’t want to completely toast your pita bread but still want it warm, try heating in the oven. Dampening the pita before heating it will keep it from drying out or toasting by accident.
