Question tile over brick

We are extending our kitchen onto an exisiting porch that has an uneven and unlevel brick surface. We want to put down ceramic tile over the existing kitchen floor and onto the porch. What is the best way to handle this situation? Use a deck mud and level?

Self leveling cement.

The separation between the brick and other subfloor will need to be honored in the tile layout as an expansion joint. Don't fill it with grout. Use an expansion metal or fill the expansion joint with colored sanded tile caulk.
