Until commercial yeast was invented in the 19th century, the Middle Eastern flatbread known as pita was made like most breads, by mixing together flour and water, then letting the dough sit out to gather natural yeasts. The high temperature at which pita is baked creates the bread’s signature internal pocket: moisture in the dough evaporates, producing steam that forces the dough to split into two layers.
