Papa John's pizza chain 'investigating' after dough explosion

Papa John's are investigating an incident that occurred in one of their UK stores yesterday.

A dumpster allegedly used by a Papa John's branch in Edinburgh was seen overflowing with dough.

It appears that dough was left in the container overnight, and subsequently expanded over the sides.

Twitter user Ailsa Burn-Murdoch (@ailsabm) snapped a photo of the #doughmonster which has since gone viral on social media.

The pizza chain acknowledged the incident via Twitter, announcing "Hi Alisa, thanks for letting us know about this. We're currently investigating this further directly with the store."

A few hours later, they Tweeted "The bin has been cleaned of all dough. We’ve spoken to the store, this won't happen again."
