Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups "00" flour
  • 6 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 10 large eggs
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

  1. Mound both flours in center of a large work surface, and make a well in the middle. Crack eggs into the well and add yolk, salt, and olive oil.

  2. Using a fork, beat eggs; slowly incorporate flour, beginning with inner rim of well. When flour is incorporated, gather dough together to form a rounded mass. Begin kneading dough with the palms of your hands. Once dough comes together, scrape up any dried bits of dough; discard.

  3. Lightly flour work surface; knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 6 minutes. Divide dough into 6 equal pieces; wrap each piece in plastic wrap until ready to use.
