In a large mixing bowl add the flour and salt. Whisk together to combine.
Heat the water to a hot temperature, not boiling, either in a small saucepan or in a heat safe container in the microwave. Add the olive oil.
Pour oil and water into the mixing bowl with the flour mixture. Knead with the dough hook on a stand mixer on low for about 10 minutes. If not using a stand mixer, knead the dough by hand on a lightly floured surface for 10-15 minutes. Once the dough is no longer sticky and you have no dough sticking to your hands, the dough has a smooth appearance, then it's ready.
Divide the dough into 12 equal sections. Roll and pinch each portion of dough to form a small ball. Place the dough portions on a lightly floured baking sheet, or on a floured counter. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let sit for 30 minutes.
Once the dough has sat for 30 minutes, heat a skillet over medium low heat.
Lightly sprinkle flour on a counter top and lightly sprinkle a rolling pin.
Using your fingers, gently flatten out one tortilla, spinning as you go so that it flattens and creates a circle. If you notice a lot of resistance in the dough, let it rest a bit longer to allow more gluten formation.
If the tortilla dough is soft and pliable, easy to press out with your fingers, continue and roll out the tortilla nice and flat in a round shape. The tortilla should be rolled thin and slightly transparent.
Place the tortilla on the hot skillet, allow to cook for about 60 seconds, you will notice bubbles forming, don't press them down. After 60 seconds, take a peek at the bottom to check the color of the tortilla, brown spots should have formed, if not, increase the heat slightly. If dark, almost black spots have formed, decrease heat.
Flip the tortilla and continue to cook the other side for another 30-45 seconds, bubbles will still form and brown spots will appear.
Remove the tortilla from the skillet and place on a plate or in a tortilla warmer.
Continue this process until all tortillas are cooked. Do not roll several tortillas at a time and stack them...they will stick.
