Look up Hertzian Contact and equations show that the peak stress is expected to be below the surface. That is true for linear materials.
Making both sides flexible will help to even out the stress.
You can add the simplest Plasticity material model: Bilinear Isotropic Hardening. All you need is the Yield Strength. Set the Tangent Modulus to 0.
