MDF with a high pressure laminate is probably the flattest least costly way to go. The fiberglass will be a durable surface and you can sand it smooth, until you sand through to the glass. Cutting the hole wont be fun. The glass fibers can be hard on steel blades. Making it flat could also be a real chore.

My 2 cents? 3/4 MDF with laminate scrap from a big box store over the birch ply with a nice hard wood trim band.

I have been using laminate over MDF for almost 10 years on my router table. (Used Poplar trim coated in BLO, it was what I had on hand.)
