Need 2 inch floor

My toilet flange is 2 inches above the floor joist. So I need to build a floor that is close to 2 inches. Here was my plan

3/4 ply
1/2 backer board
3/8 marble tiles

So Approximately this gives me 1 and 3/4 inches of floor leaving me with 1/4 to make up. I do not want to use a motar bed cos I have had bad experience with that. Can anyone suggest a way to get to 2 inches using a combination of plywood and backerboard?

Any suggestion will be appreciated

Two 3/4"s, thinset, DITRA, thinset, tiles.

Don't pee on the tiles, or you'll see it.
