Toilet flange sideways

Ok, so I did something I said I would never do and i glued my toilet flange on facing the wrong direction. I've seen Oatey makes a twist and set product that I could use, but that seems to me might end up sitting too high off the floor (laying on top of the current one) and might also have a lot of places for "stuff" to get snagged or build up on. In a book i have they said instead of using closet bolts, you can use a heavy duty wood screw to secure the toilet (screwing down through the subfloor). It looks like the screws to secure the flange are pretty closet to where i need the bolts to be, can i maybe make use of this area to slide some closet bolts in or the book recomended approach? I would then screw the flange down with washers over the slotted area. Or do I need to cut the pipe under the house and start over? The floor hasn't been nailed down yet if that makes a difference.
