In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Pour in the olive oil and warm water. Mix with a fork and then your hands until everything is well combined and the dough comes together in a ball.
Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead with your hands for about 1 minute. Cut the dough into 12 equal sized pieces and shape each piece into a ball. Cover the balls of dough with a clean kitchen towel and let them rest for 10 minutes.
Heat a dry (ungreased) cast iron skillet or other heavy pan over medium high heat and let it preheat for a few minutes. Working with one ball of dough at a time on a lightly floured surface, roll it out into a 6 to 8-inch round (roll the tortillas smaller for thicker tortillas and larger for thinner tortillas).
Immediately place the tortilla in the hot skillet. Cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute on the first side and then flip and cook for 30 to 45 seconds on the second side. The tortilla is done when it has a few light brown spots on each side. To keep the tortillas soft and warm, wrap them in a clean kitchen towel or place them in a tortilla warmer as they finish cooking. Repeat the rolling and cooking process with the remaining balls of dough.
Serve tortillas warm, with fillings as desired.
You can substitute whole wheat flour for the all-purpose flour. I recommend using half whole wheat flour and half all-purpose flour. You may need to add a few extra tablespoons of water if the dough seems too dry when using whole wheat flour.
Tortillas can be stored, wrapped airtight, at room temperature for 2 days or in the freezer for 3 months. Thaw at room temperature before using.
