Cheese is expensive and people want cheap. Plus cheese prices rose so sharply over the last year plus. Luckily my cheese prices have dropped 30 cents/lb in the last few months.

Amy;
It's already here!
It's sold under the name "Throw Dough".
It is used as a teaching tool to help novices learn how to through/spin the dough without going through hundreds of dough balls, it is also used as a practice tool by those who practice pizza acrobatics.
Kinda chewy though. ;D

I'm not sure whether that's the one endorsed by Tony Gemignani or if it's the one endorsed by Chris Green, but the one I got from Chris melted my VCR's remote control. Don't ask me how it happened, but there are blobs of melted gray plastic on my fake dough. Not a big deal to me, though, because I never really needed or used the dough. (Conversely, the remote control was once pretty handy.)

If you are offended by anything I say, it's probably because you think lying to people (to be "polite") is a good idea. I don't.

It wasn't made of silicone then. It was a plastic, probably PVC, with a plasticizer added to make it soft. The plasticizer is not confined the thing it is in, and it will soften/melt any susceptible plastic it comes in contact with. Sometimes you see the same thing in older fishing boxes - some soft plastic baits would melt right into them - they will eat right through a Styrofoam bobber as well.

I'm not sure if the remote control made the dough any chewier.
