You need an Acme pulley puller puller. God help you if THAT one gets stuck. All kidding aside, all you can do is work it loose with a really good pair of vice grips. There's a couple different types of pulley pullers out there so it's hard to make suggestions without seeing a pic (I'm assuming you have the center bolt of the puller stuck in the shaft, maybe some PBblaster will help.

This happend on my 98 3.8 Mustang. The power steering shaft will spin when trying to reverse the bolt that helped pull the Pulley off. What I just ended up doing was using a small portable/reversable impact drive and it came right off. IF you do not have access to air tools, try to quickly loosen the bolt, with a jerking motion. This "shock" force will sometimes emulate an impact driver motion (poorly) and may help loosen the bolt. Good luck!
