Any sparkling wine works in a mimosa, you don’t have to be super extravagant and use expensive Champagne if you don’t want to.
I normally use either Cava or Prosecco in my mimosas. Cava is my sparkling wine of choice. It is from Spain and is very reasonably priced.
If you can get fresh pineapple juice, that is perfect but otherwise you can get it from the grocery store.
