I'm having the same problem; mine is to plot over a circular cylinder.
I searched the forum and found this
Calculating pressure coefficient in OpenFoam
reply #5 suggested a way. I tried it once but due to some certain reasons it failed. You can have a try. If you succeed, please teach me!

You can use "sampleDict" to extract pressure data on the surface, and plot using any tool like xmgrace, python.
