Cut the piece to size then cut it in half right where the middle of the flange is so you can install one side at a time, may have to add some blocking where the cut is.

An even better way is to go under the floor and cut the PVC pipe. Install the floor then use a hubless connector to reconnect the pipe.

OP, is your problem:

1. with a cracked/deformed flange? or

2. with your toilet flange that will be lower than your new floor?

The old flange had a metal ring around it that rusted and broke off leaving the plastic part still glued into the drain pipe.
