I've used a C-clamp to push the piston back into the caliper without any problems. I recommend using the old pad against the piston to help apply even pressure when using a C-clamp. Then as you have done before, just pump the brake to restore pressure. I've done the fronts 3 times and the backs once the way you are describing and have not had any problems.
