Substitute for cornmeal to keep pizza dough from sticking to stone

Just received a pizza stone as a gift. It specifically states: "Do not use sprays or oils on the stone. Dust the stone with cornmeal to keep dough from sticking". From what I understand, seasoning stoneware requires some oil/fat. I'm allergic to corn so I tried to do without the cornmeal, and my dough did stick. The next time around, I tried to flour the bottom a little more but it came out strange. Any suggestions to keep my dough from sticking to the stone?

A friend has a wood burning pizza oven and I use it quite often, never needing to use cornmeal or sprays or anything. When I make pizza at home, I just throw it on a lightly sprayed sheet.
