You cannot clear it from File > Print > Page Setup.

Activate the Page Layout tab of the ribbon.

Select Print Area > Clear Print Area.

If that doesn't work:

Click the little arrow in the lower right corner of the Page Setup group of the Page Layout tab of the ribbon.

Activate the Sheet tab of the Page Setup dialog.

You should now be able to clear the Print Area box, then click OK.
