safe way of removing tile from wall

I am doing a bathtub surround and I noticed one half tile has some lipage and it's bothering me. It's on CB coated with aquadefense and the mortar is mapie ultralight. It's at the edge and I was thinking of prying it off...slowly... I don't want to harm the other tiles.. I haven't installed the grout yet.

How long has it been up? If less than a day, prying it up might work.

Otherwise, do you have an angle grinder? I typically make a series of kerf cuts slightly shallower than the tile thickness.

A hammer, cold chisel, and patience and you can pry out one piece and then shear off the rest. You’ll probably lose the aquadedense but you stand a goood chance that you won’t punch through the cement board.
