Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 extra-large eggs
  • 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons very finely ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Mound 3 1/2 cups flour in the center of a large board. Make a well in the middle and add eggs and pepper. Using a fork, beat eggs and pepper until thoroughly combined. Then begin to incorporate the flour, starting with the inner rim of the well. The dough will come together when half of the flour is incorporated. Keep working the dough until all the flour is incorporated.

  2. Step 2

    Start kneading the dough using the palms of both hands. Once dough is a cohesive mass, remove from the board, and scrape up and discard any leftover bits. Lightly flour the board, and continue kneading until dough is elastic and slightly sticky, 8 to 10 minutes more. Wrap in plastic, and allow to rest for 10 to 15 minutes, at room temperature, before rolling or shaping as directed.
