Why does dough rise?



  1. 0 Votes

    Dough rises because of the yeast in the dough mixture. When baked, the dough rises because of carbon dioxide bubbles forming within the dough, which is why its soft and breadlike when it comes out. unleavened bread can be made, and is what pita bread essentially is as it does not rise when cooked.

    Yeast causes dough to rise.  Bubbles of Carbon dioxide form and the bread rises.

    This is also why when you bite into a piece of bread, the inside is full of small air pockets. When the carbon dioxide rises, the random air pockets are formed which cause the dough to rise.
