Leveling area under exterior door threshold

I recently built a oversized shed on an existing concrete slap that butts up to our concrete patio. The spot I have framed for the man door has unlevel concrete. There is just under 1/2" difference between one side to the other (of where the door threshold would be). Couldn't I use some type of concrete patch mix or leveler, build a little temp frame around where my door will set, put in the stuff and trowel it level, let it set and remove temp frame and now have a level spot for the door? Seems like it should work pretty well. Is there a better idea. I really don't want to chip out a big section or anything. Kind of seems like overkill for what I need.

Thanks all!

shim?

What is the distance of fill you need from one side to the other? could you get a 2X6 (pressure treated or other size, rip it to shim and fasten it to the floor and install threshold to the top of it??
