A Pi day What Am I?

Another Pi day themed puzzle like my other one.

I contain 5 letters,

I only have 1 syllable,

I can be referred to as money,

Or I can be the foundation of something wonderful (and quite popular too),

I can come before a word similar to “crazy” to be something sweet,

I have silent letters,

Google describes me as thick and elastic.

What Am I?

• Overall this is a good riddle with one obvious right answer. Just a suggestion for the future: clue #4 ("foundation of something wonderful (and quite popular too)") is really vague. The two answerers came up with different interpretations, and my guess (pizza) was different from either of them. – DLosc Mar 15 '18 at 7:40

I think you are:

Dough

I think the first three lines are self explanatory.

Can be the foundation of something wonderful

Can be followed by a word similar to "crazy" to be something sweet

"Nut", to make doughnut/donut

Has silent letters

The gh are silent.

Google describes me as thick and elastic

When you search dough, the little box that pops up describes dough as such.

• You have the correct answer @dooog, good job :D P.S. I saw you posted first so you get a green check very soon. – QuantumTwinkie Mar 14 '18 at 23:16

• You can also write \checkmark to generate $\checkmark$ or \color{green}{\checkmark} to generate $\color{green}{\checkmark}$ instead of using $\surd$. Nonetheless, good answer $(+1)$ :D – Mr Pie Mar 15 '18 at 11:23
