Probaly not with that tile. You can sometimes take your tiles to Home Depot or a tile store and have then cut for you. Some tool rental stores also will cut tiles for you.

If you use a tile cutter you will score it and snap it just as if you were cutting a standard porcelain tile. then you would brace the tile and gently fold it until the tray is exposed then carefully score the tray a few times with the utility kife then bend the tile in half untill the tray snaps.

This doesn't work with every tile cutter, but I've had good luck with this method
