  1. Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl
  2. Beat the eggs in a smaller bowl, add to the flour along with the water and olive oil
  3. Note about water: 2-3 oz. is just a guideline, you may need more. You'll know when you've added too much because the dough will get REALLY sticky. If this happens just add some more flour, no big deal
  4. Stir everything together with a fork until it comes together, there will still be some loose chunks which is fine
  5. Dump the dough out onto your clean, floured countertop and start kneading
  6. Keep kneading
  7. Keep kneading
  8. The dough is ready when it's soft and bounces back slowly. 1-2 min of good solid kneading.
