Is there an alternate way to create a table using a procedure?

    Requires Free Membership to View

You can use the EXECUTE IMMEDIATE command in your stored procedure to run DDL to create a table, similar to the following:
CREATE PROCEDURE my_proc AS
BEGIN
   EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'CREATE TABLE foo (bar NUMER)';
END;
/
However, it is almost always poor design to run DDL inside a stored procedure. Typically, we do no let our users create tables on the fly by running a stored proc in their application code.
