1 Oil 2 large baking sheets. In a large electric mixer bowl, combine 2 cups flour and the salt. Stir in the water and olive oil until a soft dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 4 minutes. Shape the dough into a ball. Wrap it in plastic and let it rest at room temperature 1 hour.
2 Divide the dough into four pieces. Keeping the other pieces covered with an overturned bowl, flatten one piece of dough slightly. Dust it with flour and pass it through a pasta machine set at the widest opening. Continue to stretch the dough, passing it through the pasta machine on a higher setting and flouring it each time.
3 When the dough reaches the highest setting, remove it from the machine. With a wavy-edge pastry cutter, cut it into strips 1 1/4 inches wide and 10 inches long.
4 Brush off any excess flour. Lightly fold each strip in half lengthwise. Do not press it down. With the wavy edge up, wind each strip into a loose, flat spiral about two inches wide. Pinch the ends to seal. Repeat with remaining dough.
5 Place the spirals on the prepared baking sheets. Let dry at room temperature 2 hours.
6 In a deep heavy saucepan, pour enough oil to reach a depth of 2 inches, or if using an electric deep-fryer, follow the manufacturer's directions. Heat the oil to 370°F on a frying thermometer, or until a drop bit of the dough placed in the oil sizzles and browns in 1 minute. Have ready a tray lined with paper towels.
7 Add as many of the spirals to the pan as will fit without crowding. Cook, turning once, until golden brown, about 3 minutes.
8 Remove the pinwheels with a slotted spoon or skimmer and drain on paper towels. Fry the remainder in the same way.
9 Heat the honey in a medium saucepan until thinned. Arrange the pinwheels in a single layer on a platter. Drizzle with the warm honey. Serve warm or at room temperature. Store at room temperature covered loosely with foil up to 2 days.
