You can certainly use the Pulsar standalone to feed streaming topologies.
The only constraints of the standalone are more around:
 * Throughput (only 1 broker)
 * Availability (if that machine/process goes down, the "service" is down)
 * Durability (data is stored in a single node, lose one disk, lose the
data)

Deploying a multi-node clusters with brokers and bookies is a bit more
involved,  and probably not worth it to just do simple tests.
 You can find docs for deploying on bare metal or Kubernetes in
https://pulsar.incubator.apache.org/docs/latest/deployment/InstanceSetup/
