Combine yeast, sugar, and water in a 2-cup liquid-measuring cup; let stand for 5 minutes.
In work bowl of a food processor, combine flour and salt. Pulse several times to combine. With processor running, slowly add yeast mixture and oil. Continue running processor until mixture is combined and forms a ball.
On a lightly floured surface, turn dough out and knead for 5 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85 degrees F), free from drafts, for 1 hour, or until dough is doubled in bulk.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Punch dough down; knead lightly 4 or 5 times. Roll dough into an 18-inch circle.
Spray a 15-inch pizza stone lightly with cooking spray; sprinkle with cornmeal. Place dough round on top of stone, folding edges over to fit stone. Prick dough with a fork.
Top with desired sauce and toppings. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned.
