  • 2 cups all purpose flour (260 grams)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (50 grams)
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon cold water (130 grams)


  • In a large bowl or bowl of a food processor whisk together the flour and salt, then add the olive oil, stir with a fork or pulse to combine to form coarse crumbs.
  • Slowly add the cold water and continue stirring or pulsing until dough comes together.
  • Move the dough to a lightly floured flat surface and knead until smooth. Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate one hour before using.


If you find the dough too sticky then add more flour a tablespoon at a time until dough is smooth.
If you find the dough too crumbly then add cold water a tablespoon at a time until dough comes together and is smooth and compact.
