In the food processor:

To mix the dough in the food processor, place the knife in the bowl, add flour and salt and mix a few seconds. Put the eggs and oil in a measuring cup and pour through the neck of the food processor while the motor is running. Let the motor run until the dough begin to form a ball. Remove from the food processor and squeeze with your hands to shape in a ball. If it does not form a ball, add a few drops of water and process a few seconds.
