You should be able to find a generic cube tool that is universal fit that goes on a 3/8 ratchet.
make sure the parking brakes are released when doing this

I wound up getting a new caliper. Might not have had to but it didn't seem like it was going to budge at all.
A pair of sturdy needle nose pliers you should be able to get the tips in the grooves on the piston.

You also don't run the risk of pushing dirt out of the caliper into the braking system. This is especially important on ABS vehicles. If you get crap in the pump, it gets not happy.
Sure you might get some air in the brake lines. But part of a proper brake service is bleeding, or even completely changing the fluid.
