Can I use a can?

I just discovered the world of they are tasty. USEING FRESH BEETS I managed to create this beauty last night for dinner:

ok, it is not that pretty of a pizza, but it tasted GREAT!

Now I was wondering if using canned beets would give the same tasty results on another dish I want to make. Are canned beets anywhere as good as fresh ones?

But we can expand on the idea...I think Libby's canned pumpkin is good, BUT are there any other canned produce that meets the taste standard of the fresh stuff?

Thanks! You guys really are my food "Yodas," guiding this kitchen Jedi to the tasty side of the Force ( I am a geek).
