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.
What is the best way to warm pita bread?

How can you tell if pita bread has gone bad?
How to tell if packaged pita bread is bad or spoiled? The best way is to smell and look at the bread: discard any bread that has an off smell or appearance; if mold appears, discard the entire package.
How long will pita bread last in the refrigerator?

Is pita bread supposed to be hard?
