Probaly could. It's not the best idea to layer floorcoverings on top of one another.

Are you equipped to cut quartzite?

A wet saw, a good wet saw, is about the only efficient way to do it.

See if your counter-tops or cabinet can raise, in order to install dishwasher and refer back in place. They may not fit, when you increase the new material's thickness under them. May need a longer tailpiece on the sink drain....
Be safe, Gary
