We've improved this in ArcGIS Pro and cut down the number of clicks considerably. Open up the Label class pane, go to the symbol tab and expand the halo expander. Everything you need is there. Best part is if you choose the wrong colour you're already there and can change it without going through the whole ok ok ok button click out like before.
