Three options

Menu File → Recent Documents → Clear List (LibreOffice 4.1/4.2)

Close LibreOffice
Go to your LibreOffice user profile
Open registrymodifications.xcu with a text editor
Search for 'PickList'
Delete the corresponding item, and save registrymodifications.xcu,
e.g. for a file sample.odt:

<item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.Histories/Histories/org.openoffice.Office.Histories:HistoryInfo['PickList']/ItemList"><node oor:name="file:///path/sample.odt" oor:op="replace"><prop oor:name="Filter" oor:op="fuse"><value>writer8</value></prop><prop oor:name="Password" oor:op="fuse"><value></value></prop><prop oor:name="Title" oor:op="fuse"><value>sample</value></prop></node></item>

Install the extension History Master via Tools → Extension Manager... → Add...
Restart LibreOffice
Remove the entry via Tools → Add-Ons → History Master: List Handling...
