Halacha - baking matzah
Submitted by shulamit  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

It is customary not to bake matzos on Pesach because whenever one bakes matzos there is always some dough that falls on the floor or sticks to the implements or otherwise doesn't make it into the oven within 18 minutes and becomes chometz. On Pesach there is the issue of not being allowed to own chometz and bitul does not help. While there are wys of getting around these problems and before matzos were commercially mass produced many people did bake matzos at home on Pesach, today it is generally not done.
