I R, I typically create a text slide by first creating a plot that has 
the x axis run from 0 to 1 and the y axis run from 0 to 1.  Then I 
suppress the axes and any labels so that I visually have a blank page 
but with the axes specified.  I then add text at different x-y 
coordinates to get the slide I want.  This method works well for my 
purposes.  How can I do the same in Stata?  Basically, create a blank 
slide with both axes running from 0 to 1, suppress the axes and add text 
where I want.

Something like the following will get you a basic blank page.

graph twoway scatteri 1 1, msymbol(none) yscale(off) ylabel(0(1)1) //
    xscale(off) xlabel(0(1)1)

You'd use textboxes to craft and position your text (-help textbox_options-).  

I haven't really used this approach or even considered it before, and so what's
above is probably naïve and could be simplified.
