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?

    $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ – 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

Bread/cookie dough

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.

I'm thinking about:

dough

  • It consists of 5 letters. $\color{green}{\checkmark}$
  • It only has one syllable. $\color{green}{\checkmark}$
  • It can be referred to as money. $\color{green}{\checkmark}$
  • Think about 'Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough Ice' :-) It's simply wonderful and popular. $\color{green}{\checkmark}$

  • Add 'nut' (nuts) and you get the delicious doughnut $\color{green}{\checkmark}$

  • 'gh' is a very silent sound. $\color{green}{\checkmark}$

  • http://lmgtfy.com/?q=dough $\color{green}{\checkmark}$

Thank you for this riddle!

    $\begingroup$ 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 $\endgroup$ – Feeds Mar 15 '18 at 11:23
