Got into the same problem as the OP. Wiped everyting and only have Phliz recovery. Couldn't flash CM11 because according to CM thread must have latest version of CWM ( while the philz recovery I installed is based on Couldn't flash newer recovery I downloaded from CWM site, it would just freeze and get stuck.

My solution is to just flash CM10.1.3 stable plus gapps. Worked fine. Then proceed from there.
Current Device:
Nexus 5 | Carbon ROM nightlies | ElementalX Kernel 0.36 AOSP | PA Gapps

Previous Devices:
Samsung Galaxy SII [DIY Screen Replacement Failure] | CM10.2 | Stock CM Kernel
Samsung Omnia II [SOLD] | Ported Android Froyo
Nokia 3310 [Survived Titanfall]

You must have CWM or higher, which is fully SELinux compatible for KitKat.
Just flash Raw kernel r4, reboot in recovery (of raw kernel ) and then do your flash and wipes.
You can't simply install a newer recovery on our device, as kernel and recovery are bound together, but ...THIS IS BASIC KNOWLEDGE FOR OUR DEVICE!!!
