    Yes you can Restore from Time Capsule.

    And for a wipe, boot into the Restore DVD on your MBP, select Utilities, Disk Utility. Then select your Macintosh partition, Security Options, Zero Out; finally click enter a new name or just 'Macintosh HD' and then click Erase. This will take an hour or so depending on your HDD capacity; when it's done, restart your computer and boot back into the Restore DVD. Then install like normal. When its done, it'll be like new.

    Select this:
