Like something out of a horror movie, a mass of pizza dough has started to grow in a dumpster it was discarded in. The dough was tossed by a Domino’s Pizza employee while prepping for Hurricane Ida. Now, one resident has documented the dough’s growth.

What was only a blob when it first was pitched into the Covington pizzeria’s dumpster has now risen and spilled out onto the concrete. The dough monster continued to grow in its metal cage as temperatures rose into the 90s throughout the weekend.

One resident, Nicole Amstutz, has documented the blob’s growth since Wednesday via her social media account, where she describes herself as a “Snacktion Reporter.”

Amstutz’s Facebook posts have received massive amounts of attention, with 1,600 shares alone on Saturday afternoon.

Responding to comments, Amstutz said she is “really just happy it’s making so many people laugh at such a stressful time.”
