Combine 1 cup warm water (110°F), the sugar and yeast in a large bowl. Let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil, the flour and fine salt; stir to form a sticky dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth, about 10 minutes, dusting with flour.
Brush a large bowl with olive oil; add the dough, loosely cover with plastic wrap and set aside until doubled in size, about 1 hour, 30 minutes.
Brush a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil. Stretch the dough on the baking sheet. Cover with a towel; set aside until doubled, 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 475°F. Scatter the cheese, bell pepper and scallion whites over the dough. Bake until the crust is golden, 15 to 18 minutes. Toss the spinach and scallion greens with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon olive oil and the sea salt. Sprinkle over the flatbread; bake 2 more minutes.
