Heat oil in a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Add pumpkin seeds and cook until they start to pop and turn golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add tamari, sugar and cayenne. Continue to cook until seeds are coated, glossy and golden brown, about 1 more minute. Arrange mixture in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Set aside to cool before serving.
