Remove scrap material under the pipe.

Pipe will be more ridgely located that it is currently is and at the desired height.

It will take you three tries to get it right. That's three tries on the flooring patch and more on the cement board. Cut a piece of flooring material 2 inches bigger that the opening. Measure and cut out the circle for the pipe. Rip the flooring material thru the center of the hole. Fit each piece around pipe. Mark and cut edges to fit opening.

Do the same thing with the cement board but rip in the opposite direction. No real advantage in having every thing one piece.
I think I'm still more comfortable knocking the old flange off and going with a new one. This isn't something I want to ever do again (at least in this bathroom). That deep closet flange I showed in the picture above shows that the flange is only 1/8" above finished floor, (well within the tolerance of the bottom of the toilet to prevent rocking), unlike that giagantic thick flange SeniorSitizen posted a pic of with that 2" wax ring - apparently to make some kind of point.

Either way - thanks for your help guys, (those of you who actually responded for the purpose of helping). And thank you for your unsolicited and unwanted criticism SeniorSitizen. Must be awesome to know everything.
