Texas Restaurant Catches Heat For ‘Dahmer Special’ Pizza
Capital Pizza, located in Lubbock, Texas, has received backlash for displaying its ‘Dahmer Special’ pizza that features fake fingers and eyeballs.
The manager of the restaurant said that one of the employees came up with the design to display at the pizzeria because of the popularity of the show.
The manager said, “The pie is just ramen noodles, pepperoncini garnish … along with the prop body parts and a whole lot of fake blood.”

It is not a menu item, but it has been displayed at the establishment, which has grossed a lot of customers out.
The manager even noted that some customers are coming by the restaurant just to take pictures with it.
