In large mixer bowl combine the eggs, water, salt, and oil with a dough hook.
On low speed gradually add the flour until the dough forms a ball.

Let the dough rest for 15 minutes.
Turn the dough out on a floured board and roll it very thin.

Coat with egg wash and place a second sheet on top for a cover.
