Need advice with bathroom tile floor and toilet issue?

I am redoing a bathroom (repaint, upgrade, etc.). I am going to replace the linoleum flooring with ceramic tile flooring. I am also going to replace the existing toilet. I am thinking that before i install the new toilet, that I should install the flooring to surround the toilet drain pipe, allowing the toilet flange to rest on top of the new flooring, and THEN install the toilet.

Is this the best way to go?? The only option i can think of would be to go ahead and replace the toilet onto the floor, and then cut the tile to go around the toilet instead of under it. This seems like it would not look right.

Please give advice. Feel free to be detailed with advice too, but try to keep the terminology simple. Thanks in advance for any help.
