The quickest way is probably to "send the dimension backward in the drawing order". In other words, the drawing order of manual dimensions is 5 by default and could be set to any order that puts the dimension "underneath" whatever you want to show instead.

Edit the Dimension Text Style (whatever your dimensions are using - usually accessed from the layer dimension layer) and check the box for "Transparent Background".

I am not surprised you had trouble finding it :)  ...5 layers down......   Use select all in the 4th DBX and do all the Text Styles at once if you never want to see the background.....

 "Use Layer for Text Style"  is much simpler.  That way you can customize Layer Sets.  I use this for almost all Text & Dimensions.  I also use the Layer Settings for Linestyles and Colors.  It greatly simplifies the appearance in different drawing types along with Reference Sets.
