You are a

picnic

I am a word with rhyming parts. Each part a word if spoken aloud.

'pic' and 'nic' are not words, but sound like:

The first is to bully

pick, as in 'to pick on'

The last is to steal

nick, as in 'to nick something'

And spoken together, a pleasant meal.

A picnic is a type of (often pleasant) meal!

Title: This Riddle Should Be Easy

Idiomatically, something that is 'no picnic' is not easy. So, it follows that a picnic should be quite easy.
