Combine flour and salt. Mix thoroughly to distribute salt. Set aside
Combine egg yolks and olive oil in a separate bowl. Whisk together with a fork, breaking all yolks.
Whisk the flour mixture slowly into the egg mixture with your fork. Work in small increments, making sure to break up any lumps so the dough stays nice and homogenous.
Once the dough becomes thick and difficult to whisk, begin using your hands to work the flour into the dough until it comes together into a smooth, pliable mass. It should be quite dense, but not dry.
Continue kneading for 10 more minutes to develop the gluten network and build texture.
Seal the dough in an airtight container or wrap tightly with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rest for at least 45 minutes before using.
