According to the FSM, it is removed using compressed air.

Remove the caliper
Remove the bleeder valve
Place a piece of wood in the cylinder body to stop the piston
Put compressed air in the bleeder hole.
Remove the piston seal with a suitable tool.

Both the piston boot and piston seal must be replaced when reassembling.

An alternative method for removing the caliper piston from the front calipers is to take the brake line screw out, insert a long M8 bolt in through that hole, and tap it lightly with a hammer. If you put something soft (like a rubber sheath) on the end of the bolt before you insert it, it will prevent the back of the piston from getting scratched. I prefer the compressed air method to this, but it's handy in case you don't have access to a compressor.

NAPA also sells the piston seal and boot as a "seal boot kit".
