Boost Me! Foccacia

Think 'bread meets pizza' - with a touch of Sunny Mummy, obviously!

Last week in another week of lockdown, home alone with the kids - it was lunch time. I looked in the cupboard and realised that we basically didn't have any food left in the house. I am the oldest of four children and my mum is half Croatian. I grew up eating Mediterranean inspired foods. Suddenly, I had a flash back of me as a little girl watching my mum staring in to an empty fridge - wondering what the heck she was going to feed us?! Luckily I also enjoyed watching my Mum make something out of nothing! That is one of her super powers for sure! Over the years, I have developed some of her skills too! SO, I saw that I had exactly the left overs I needed to make... FOCACCIA!

Boost Me! Focaccia



1 mug (200ml) of warm water

1 tsp sugar (helps to activate the yeast)

1 sachet of instant yeast

2 mugs of wholemeal flour

6 teaspoons of Boost ME!


1 small brown onion

1/2 jar black olives

1/2 jar sun dried tomatoes

cherry tomatoes in half 

1/2 cup grated cheese

(or what ever Italian inspired left-overs you have in the fridge)


1. Warm your oven to 200c.

2. In a large bowl, add warm water, sugar and yeast, mix until dissolved.

3. Add the flour and Boost Me! to the water and kneed well to form a dough. Tip: if the dough is too sticky, add a handful of extra flour at a time, if the dough is too dry add a splash of water until the dough is at the right consistency.

4. Form a ball and place the dough back into the bowl. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and set aside in a warm dry place to rise for 30 minutes.  

5. In the mean time, prepare your toppings.

6. Once the dough has risen, line a oven tray with baking paper and form a oval shape with your dough. The dough should be about 4cm thick.

7. Add your toppings to the top of the dough.

8. Bake in a hot oven for 30 minutes.

9. Serve once warm.

(Tip: Keeps in an airtight container for 2 days)
