Yes of course you can - and about every guide on writing your own product
shows you how to do it.

For example just look at my BetaBoring sample product:

What you do is use PageTemplateFile:
from Products.PageTemplates.PageTemplateFile import PageTemplateFile
_www= os.path.join(os.path.dirname(__file__), 'www')
index_zpt = PageTemplateFile(_www+'/index.zpt', globals())
