patching area of vinyl flooring before covering with a new layer?

I have a vinyl floor that I was going to cover over with another layer of vinyl flooring. Unfortunately, the subfloor/underlayment had to be repaired due
to water damage, and I am now looking for a method to build up a surface
level with the existing vinyl.

Here's an image of the area:

Obviously, the cabinet needs to go back in before I finish this off...

I've been using that cement based feathering compound elsewhere, but it seems like the stuff starts hardening up before I can get it troweled really smooth/flat if there's any depth at all to the fill. I've also got some embossing leveler to use on the floor itself, but maybe this is a little too deep an area to use that on?

Due to floor height differences, I was hoping to not have to lay down another layer of plywood on top of the whole floor.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Just use some peel and stick, they are cheap and should be the same thickness as the vinyl. I assume you are using loose lay vinyl?
